Alison Smart Fisher writes:

Jephtha is one of Handel’s finest oratorios, and the story it tells is one which explores the deepest feelings  of human love,  piety, and sacrifice. Handel captures exactly the mood of every twist and turn of the plot, enhancing Thomas Morrell’s libretto to bring each character and situation, each moment, to colourful life.  Written toward the end of his life, and at the end of his long and fruitful composing career,
Jephtha presents us with real people in real-life situations, expressing real emotions.

This choir is growing, in both numbers and confidence.
We offer you the chance to join us on Tuesday nights for the autumn term rehearsing Purcell’s ‘Dido and Aeneas’. 
We look forward to seeing you!
Rehearsals for Dido commence on 13 September 2022

Now rehearsing back at Alyth

If you would like to sing with us please email alythchoralsociety@gmail.com

During the summer we said goodbye to Vivienne Bellos, our founder and Music Director for over 39 years. She will, of course, remain as our President and consultant.

We welcome our new Music Director Alison Smart Fisher.
We are really lucky to have found such an excellent musician to take over from the legend that is Viv.
Please feel free to look up Alison Smart Fisher on her website.

See if this friendly choir is for you.

New members are always made welcome.
