Award-winning vocal ensemble.

Formed in 1994 by organist and conductor Mark Ford, The Purcell Singers are an award-winning chamber choir, who excel in live performance and studio recording.

The choir draws on talented and experienced singers to perform a varied repertoire of both well-loved and lesser known works, and also recording commercial works, particularly for the film industry.

We perform extensively around the capital, across the UK and internationally. Our president is Sarah Walker CBE.



The Purcell Singers are as at home in the recording studio as the concert hall. Our amazing eight minute showreel showcases a selection of themes recorded by The Purcell Singers for use in the movie industry.

Join us in early September 2017 for a scrumptious hour of a cappella singing as The Purcell Singers perform Rachmaninov's phenomenal All-Night Vigil.
