Join Quire Voices on a journey through the history of choral music at the Royal Court, followed by a three-course dining experience in the beautiful setting of Cumberland Lodge at this fundraising event.
This Platinum Jubilee celebration will hear the chamber choir perform songs spanning over 500 years, from Henry VIII’s Past Time With Good Company, to Prince Albert’s Jubilate, and concluding with the most recent commission from The Royal Chapel, Windsor Great Park. In this musical lecture, you will learn about the political and musical changes that took place and how they affected the development of choral music from the court.
This will be followed by dinner in our historic dining rooms, where you can enjoy our renowned hospitality and a menu created using produce sourced from the Windsor estate.
You will also have the opportunity to join a tour of our former royal residence.

About Quire Voices
Conducted by Sean Bui, Quire Voices was formed in 2011 to give opportunities to experienced singers who have pursued other career directions, but who wish to continue singing to a high standard. The choir performs a repertoire spanning the 15th century to the present day and, in the past, have performed with The Band of The Household Cavalry, The Heroes Band, and The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Most recently, Quire Voices featured in a special concert in St George’s Chapel alongside the Orpheus Sinfonia and other local chamber choirs to celebrate Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
