REPERTOIRE OF THE GENEVA HOLY TRINITY CHOIR

Primarily a liturgical choir, the Holy Trinity Choir has a regular contingent of 16 members, singing the Anglican liturgy at 8 services every month. In addition to 3 concerts a year, expanding to 30-40 voices, they sing the ‘Festival of 9 Lessons and Carols’ at the Cathedral every Christmas eve – to a congregation of over 1,000!

Our 2014 concert tour took us to Moscow and Izhevsk, and in the summer of 2016 we were in residence at Worcester Cathedral (July 25-28).
