Admission is free, with a retiring collection for church funds.
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.
Patrick Allies was appointed as the Ripieno Choir’s director of music in April 2023, succeeding Huw Morgan. He studied music at King’s College, London, followed by postgraduate study at the University of Cambridge.
He is now a conductor and musicologist based in London, artistic director of the vocal ensemble Siglo de Oro, and is researching fifteenth-century choirs and their performance spaces for a DPhil from the University of Oxford.
