Our Repertoire

There are so many great songs …

… and we’d love to sing ‘em all but have settled for quality and an eclectic mix instead!  It’s always been recognised that the old standards lend themselves to the particular genre of 4-part a cappella harmony – all that lovely stuff from the 20s through to the 60s sung by so many great vocalists.  We perform a good selection from these years, including: Manhattan, Sway, The Lady is a Tramp/He’s a Tramp Medley, South Rampart Street Parade (very exciting!) & from the ’70s, a 10 part arrangement of the ELO’s Mr Blue Sky.  We are privileged to have some brilliant arrangers in our Barbershop Societies today and thoroughly enjoy singing what they’ve accomplished with modern songs, including: Coldplay’s Fix You and Keane’s Somewhere Only We Know through to  Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah (though not all the verses …) and Billy Joel’s And So It Goes. We’ve even got a bit of Tchaikovsky in there with the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy plus songs from stage & screen including All That Jazz from Chicago and of course our two latest Convention songs ‘Someone to Watch Over Me’  and ”Is You Is or Is You Ain’t My Baby’..

With all the songs in our current repertoire, plus several more from our in-house quartet ‘Free Range’, be assured that we can put forward a varied and well balanced programme for you.  And, in addition, there’s our Christmas programme of carols and seasonal songs – all the favourites for this special time of year.
