Caritas Chamber Choir is an
auditioned choir based in Canterbury, Kent, directed by Benedict
Preece. It was formed in 2011 with the aim of performing a
varied repertoire to a high standard and raising funds for a wide
range of good causes.
The choir perform a varied repertoire from Renaissance to newly composed works. Recent collaborations have been with choirs from both Sweden and the Netherlands. We have built up a new and exciting relationship with Lille Cathedral in France. Throughout 2017 we will continue to perform concerts for charities and continue our ongoing commitment with Canterbury Cathedral and sing there regularly during holiday periods.
We have a number of exciting projects lined up, some of which can be seen on thepage.
We were invited to perform at the Juan March Fundación in Madrid to mark the opening of an exhibition celebrating the work of William Morris. The programme included settings of poetry by Morris and others, set by Parry, Holst, Elgar and Finzi. For more videos, see ourpage.
