“We are delighted to be hosting this very special performance at All Saints. The choirs are comprised of auditioned amateur singers, and all three produce weekly that rare and difficult thing to achieve: music that is of the highest standard yet without professional singers. We are particularly excited at All Saints this year to have a splendid line up of choral scholars, who will be taking the solo roles in the Passion."

---The Reverend Canon Joe Hawes,
Vicar of Fulham

"Tremendous musicianship and friendship is always clearly apparent and very audible in each performance. We’re really excited to be performing Bach’s St John Passion with such skilful and attentive colleagues."

--- Tom Williams, Choral Director, St Martin-in-the-Fields


"Three Choirs' events are a very special affair. We come together to create an instrument that's the size of a choral society with the accuracy of a chamber choir. And there's the obvious element of local pride - no singer wants to let down their own church. The result is always a generous and dynamic sound wrought with commitment and accuracy. And this time it will not just be a passionate performance but a Passionate one too."

---Jeremy Summerly, Director of Music, St Luke's, Chelsea

 “Every time the three choirs get together, the sound is so much more than the sum of its parts. The choirs are all of chamber choir proportions and full of excellent voices, and the result when we join the three together is a thrilling sound that is nonetheless flexible, and a real pleasure to work with.”

--- Jonathan Wikeley, Director of Music, All Saints Fulham
