We are pleased to announce that our 2018 Come and Sing will be:

Handel’s Coronation Anthems

The King Shall Rejoice
Zadok the Priest
Let Thy Hand Be Strengthened
My Heart Is Inditing

Saturday 13th January 2018 at Trinity Methodist Church Centre Royland Road, Loughborough

All choral singers have heard of Zadok the Priest, and most have probably sung it at some time or other. But how many people are as familiar with the other three great anthems which form this Handelian tour de force? Composed for the coronation of George II in 1727, the Handel Coronation Anthems are a masterpiece amongst masterpieces in the choral repertoire.

Workshop Leader: Nicholas Scott-Burt

Rehearsal Accompanist and Performance Organist: Adrian Moore

The format of the day will be as in previous years

Registration: 10am. Performance: 5.30- 6.15pm approx

Cost is 15. Music provided.

Advanced booking will be essential. If you have received an e-mail with this information, you should receive the application form by email. The application form may also be downloaded from here. Please feel free to forward to your friends.

Please note: Responding to suggestions after last year, we intend to seat the men in blocks this time to give more of a sense of solidarity.

This event has proved very popular and is, unfortunately, now FULLY BOOKED with 140 singers! The only possible exception would be for a couple more tenors to join the thirteen we already have signed up. We will run a waiting list for all other parts – please e-mail your details to

Please do not transfer any money until you have e-mailed your application and had availability confirmed. We will run a waiting list. Thanks

Over the past few years Shepshed Singers have been holding annual ‘Come and Sing’ workshop events which have proved to be both popular and successful. You will be pleased to know that Charnwood Voices will be carrying on this tradition!

Held in January, these are one day workshops that have been attracting well over 100 singers of varying musical ability to come together from all over the East Midlands to rehearse and perform well known musical works. The workshop is a whole day event, and the aim is to learn as much of the work as we can, and to bring it to the highest possible standard in the limited time. It is open to all singers, whether you sing regularly with a choir or not. Many of the singers who come will not have sung the music before. It does help if you are able to read music to some degree and have listened to the piece before the day, but there are always some singers present who have done the piece before and lead the way. The day is hard work but great fun and very rewarding. We finish the afternoon with an informal performance to amaze our audience of friends and family with what we have achieved during the day.
