About

Sergei Rachmaninovís sacred choral music has become some of the best known amongst the extensive repertoire composed in Russia before its untimely curtailing with the advent of the Revolution in 1917.

Rachmaninovís choral writing is technically both perfect and ambitious, linguistically rooted in tradition yet constantly seeking to renew it, and transcendent in its piercing beauty.

The Joyful Company of Singers is one of Europeís leading chamber choirs, known for its virtuosity and intensity of spirit, as well as for an astoundingly wide repertoire, ranging from the sixteenth century to the present day, and particularly featuring contemporary a cappella works, including many first performances.

Together with founder and conductor Peter Broadbent, the choir has won an impressive list of national and international competitions, and has a history of success in recordings, broadcasts and concerts. The choir makes regular appearances at all the main British festivals, as well as festivals in Europe, Russia and the United States. Its discography runs to more than 20 CDs, and includes music by many British composers as well as Barber, Poulenc and Malcolm Williamson.
