Tredici - the first 18 years
Our aim is to perform some of the finest sacred music ever written to the highest standards and strive to allow our audience
to hear us, as far as possible, without having to buy a ticket
Tredici is resident at the church of St Giles-in-the-Fields in Holborn. Our association with this beautiful 1734 Henry Flitcroft-designed church dates back to the choir’s formation, in 2004, when Richard Thomas was invited to assemble a group of singers for the Leprosy Mission's carol service. There were 13 singers at that first event - hence the choir's name.
In the intervening years the choir's membership has evolved into the current group of 35 - most of whom are experienced singers drawn from a variety of leading London choirs including the Philharmonia Chorus, BBC Symphony Chorus and London Symphony Chorus. Tredici has performed over 90 concerts in central London churches.
Our wide repertoire encompasses sacred music from the 16th to the 21st centuries and past concerts have featured masterpieces by such renowned composers as Monteverdi, de Padilla, Guerrero, Victoria, Tallis, Purcell, and Byrd through to Howells, Rachmaninov, Britten, Tavener and MacMillan.
We rehearse for just 75 minutes a week (on Monday lunchtimes in term-time) but still strive to perform at near-professional standards and our ever-growing audience is testament to this achievement.

congenial and friendly chamber choir I could imagine"
