Cappella Novocastriensis is a chamber choir based in Newcastle specialising in acappella singing of Renaissance and Baroque period church music… but that is only part of the story…
We present five concerts in the 2013-14 season, as well as our annual carol service and occasional engagements for worship, weddings, funerals and other services and events.
Cappella was founded in 1960 by Dr Frederick Hudson and soon gained a high reputation for its presentation of music for worship, a tradition that continues today.
However, our underlying purpose is to present music and texts that are reflective and inspirational to audiences of all backgrounds. Therefore, we sing both sacred and secular music — both early music and with a significant repertoire from later periods, including the present day.
The choir has about 40 singers. Membership is by simple audition and we rehearse on Wednesday evenings in St. Andrew’s Church, Newgate Street — traditionally Newcastle’s oldest parish church, serving people from the city’s universities, hospitals and markets (and a certain football club!).
We hope that what you find on the website will inspire you — to join us at a concert, to sing with us or to support us in other ways. To find out more, see our What we do page.
