About the choir
The Brixi Singers were formed in 1994 as a small chamber choir in Bolton, to perform variety of works, with a maximum number of 22 singers. This small group first sang in a much larger concert, and the piece they chose to sing was Veni Spiritui Sancto, by a 17th century Czech composer called Brixi. As the group became established, they took inspiration from this, and named their group after this composer! The Brixi Singers undertake 4-6 concerts a year, and have performed many sacred and secular pieces, either alone as a group, or in collaboration with other groups.
