The Ripieno Choir June 2023

The choir

We are a chamber choir of about thirty experienced singers, based near Esher.

Directed by Patrick Allies, we sing sacred and secular music, mostly from the Renaissance and Baroque eras, and have a penchant for rarely performed and rediscovered music.

We mostly perform a cappella, but for larger works we are able to attract first-class professional soloists and specialist instrumental ensembles.
