Founded in 1985 by David Cheetham, and now directed by Andrew Wyatt, St Mary’s Singers exist primarily to sing the services at Truro Cathedral when the Cathedral Choir is on holiday. In addition, the forty-strong chamber choir performs concerts throughout the year. The choir has sung a liturgical Passion on Palm Sunday for several years. In services, concerts, weddings, and other special events we have sung music, secular and sacred, from all centuries, medieval to present-day.
St Mary’s Singers have collaborated with the Rambert Dance Company, Monteverdi String Band, English Cornett and Sackbut Ensemble, and The Gesualdo Six and have been broadcast live on BBC Radio. We regularly commission works for the choir, and have recorded three CDs, All this Time this Song is Best, Salmow Kernewek (featuring the work of local composers), and most recently, with Abbey Brass, A Ceremony of Psalms.
