Founded in 1977 and based at Leeds Minster, St Peter's Singers of Leeds is one of the leading chamber choirs in the North of England, with a strong track record of innovation and enterprise. Directed since its inception by Dr Simon Lindley, it has established a reputation for compelling and musical interpretations of choral music dating from the Renaissance to the present day.
St Peter’s Singers appear regularly in Leeds Leisure Services lunchtime concerts, and present one of the great works from the Oratorio repertoire each year on Good Friday in Leeds Minster. In recent years they have also appeared with Leeds Philharmonic and Leeds Festival Chorus in other Town Hall concerts.
In 2014, the choir performed and then recorded a programme of spiritual music in the Victoria Quarter, the heart of Leeds' commercial centre, exploiting the wonderful acoustics of that space to produce an acclaimed CD, One Equal Music.
The Singers have already given the first performance of a new work in 2018: Tu es Petrus, commissioned by the choir from Philp Moore to celebrate its 40th anniversary, received its first hearing at a recital in Leeds Minster in June.
Penthos will form the second in a series of four concerts by St Peter's Singers this winter remembering the Great War, alongside Light Perpetual, War Horse: The story in Concert, and Dona Nobis Pacem.
St Peter's Singers welcomes new members - please contact the Choir secretary for details.
