The Farrant Singers are the longest-established chamber choir in Salisbury, with close links to the Cathedral where choir members frequently sing for services in place of the Cathedral Choir. The choir took part in the world premiere of Bob Chilcott’s ‘Salisbury Vespers’ in 2009, has broadcast live on BBC Radio 4 in Sunday Worship, and has worked with the John Armitage Memorial Trust to present new and recent works for choir, brass and organ.
