OPENING EYES,
STIRRING HEARTS,
AWAKENING SOULS.

 

When we sing together we open eyes, stir hearts and awaken souls.

We are proud of our 50 year heritage, our accolades, our awards and our experience.

We sing for love, for the power and creativity we bring to our audiences and to reimagine the symphony chorus for tomorrow.

Sussex Sings Christmas Virtual Concert

‘Alongside the usual sparklingly festive favourites performed by Juliette, our Chorus, Youth Choir and the RPO, this year is a unique opportunity to celebrate Christmas as a county by joining together in song online. We want as many people as possible to upload their versions of the carols we’ve chosen, so we can make the concert one that will live long in the memory!’

Carmina Burana

Carmina Burana

Spring 2021

Carmina Burana

Carl Orff

Carmina Burana is one of the most popular choral works ever written –  used in everything from TV adverts to horror films. This is because it’s so instantly memorable, and conjures up so many strong visual images throughout its epic, sprawling, occasionally bonkers journey, from the menace of the opening to the heart stopping beauty of the soprano solo – In Trutina. BFC has a long association with the piece, and recorded the version used so memorably in an Old Spice advert.

Choral Suite

Duke Ellington

This performance of Ellington’s Sacred Concert is in fact a compilation taken from all three of his Sacred Concerts. He regarded these works as the most important he ever wrote. The most striking feature of the works – a patchwork of pieces with different forces and texts – is the sheer exuberance that he achieves simply by bringing jazz into church; a tonic for the soul.

Rutter Requiem

Rutter Requiem

John Rutter

John Rutter holds a special place in contemporary choral music, with his often underrated ability to write well-crafted melodic, accessible – and singable- music. Of all his works, the Requiem is perhaps his most directly emotional – and very much in the tradition of the gentler French twentieth century masterpieces by Faure and Durufle.
