Sussex Harmony was founded in 1992 to research, reconstruct and perform the little known music of the English Church and Independent Chapel from 1700 to
1850, and its derivatives from New England and the Southern States - a tradition that continues with new music to the present day.
We have brought our vibrant music to other choirs by arranging workshops for them. We now have longstanding friendships with choirs such as the Bexhill
Methodists and Catsfield parish church. Both have invited us back several times and thoroughly enjoyed performing along side us, often dressing up for the occasion too - see costumes!
The quire's membership is drawn from people of all ages with a variety of interests and consists of an enthusiastic band of amateur singers and instrumentalists. Weekly
practices are held on Thursdays in Lewes and new members are always welcome. Our current membership is around 20 and we have a oboe, clarinet and recorder, double-bass, viola with occasional flute and violin.
We are of all – or no – religious persuasions. Though we tend to practice and perform in churches and chapels we have also
performed in venues ranging from theatres to breweries!
