The Hythe Singers

The Hythe Singers Perform a selection of some of the finest choral music, including works by Bach, Britten, Vaughan Williams, Mäntyjärvi, and Cecilia MacDowall

The Hythe Singers is a small and enthusiastic group of amateur singers. They perform a wide and varied repertoire, from arrangements of popular songs to music by classical composers from the 12th to the 21st century. You can hear some of their favourite pieces recorded before and during Lockdown on our YouTube channel.

They also sing choral evensong on an occasional basis (most recently at All Saints Church, Marlow, a week’s summer residency at St. David’s Cathedral in Wales, and a weekend at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor).

In recent years, the choir has performed and commissioned a number of works by young contemporary composers, mostly for unaccompanied voices.

The Hythe Singers’ musical director, Richard Harker, is also musical director of  Hampton Choral Society, Bath Spa University Chamber Choir, the Wallace Singers, APPS Singers and Teatime Opera. He is chorus master for Opera Holland Park and singing lead at Beechview Academy, High Wycombe.

Richard graduated with an MA in Choral Conducting from the Royal Academy of Music, receiving the Thomas Armstrong Prize. He read music at, and was organ scholar of Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge, where he received the Swinburne Prize.

The choir are also supported by their assistant musical director, Emma Warren, a graduate in music from the University of Birmingham, now studying for a Masters in Choral Conducting at the Royal Academy of Music.
