Sacred and secular music for cathedral and concert hall from Renaissance to 21st Century
Cappella was founded in 1960 by Frederick Hudson and quickly gained a high reputation for its presentation of music for worship, a tradition continued by Eric Cross and carried forward today under the direction of Simon Lee. Simon has just returned for studying for a music Masters degree in America, and is pleased to be back in charge. Heartfelt thanks to Peter Coulson for looking after us so well.
Our underlying purpose is to present music and texts that are reflective and inspirational to audiences of all backgrounds and so we offer a feast of sacred and secular music — with a generous helping of early music for main course and delicious desserts from later periods, including the present day.
The choir has about 30 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, markets and a certain football club!
