The Finzi Singers was founded in 1987 by Paul Spicer and for many years was universally acclaimed as one of the leading choral groups performing in the world. This was reinforced by its many recordings for Chandos Records (see separate link under 'Recordings')
The group was the leading exponent of British 20th century choral music, Paul Spicer's field of specialist expertise. Under his direction the choir of between 12 and 24 voices became renowned for their quality of sound, their vivid and characterful performances, and the thoughtful musicianship which communicated to audiences across the globe. The group commissioned numerous composers to write works for them including Michael Berkeley, Judith Bingham, John Joubert, David Matthews, Stephen Pratt, Jeremy Dale Roberts, John Tavener, Mark Blatchly, James Wishart and Julian Philips. Contemporary music was always a major feature of their work.
Since 2000 the group has ceased to work as Paul has moved on to other areas of focus and much of the repertoire he wanted to bring to the public's attention has now been recorded by the group. The recordings are a lasting legacy to the group's achievements in its years of work together.
