Welcome to the Benedict Biscop Gregorian Choir

   

The Benedict Biscop Gregorian Choir draws singers from across the North-East of England to learn and perform gregorian chant and other plainsong.

 

We enjoy singing together as we explore some of the roots of Western music and try to relate the heritage of this music to life in the 21st century.

 

“A real tradition is not the relic of a past that is irretrievably gone; it is a living force that animates and informs the present…. Far from implying the repetition of what has been, tradition presupposes the reality of what endures. It appears as an heirloom, a heritage that one receives on condition of making it bear fruit before passing it on to one’s descendants.”

IGOR STRAVINSKY
