About us

The Lewes Singers is a small, occasional choir based in Lewes, East Sussex, directed by  Nicholas Houghton.

We sing services at cathedrals, give occasional concerts and fund-raisers, and are available for weddings and functions.

We don’t meet regularly but we get together for two or three rehearsals before a date. Although the Lewes Singers only formed in 2004, many of us sang together before that over a number of years in various choirs throughout the South East, and some members are professional or semi-professional musicians.  From a pool of about 30 members we usually field a choir of between 16 and 22 singers for a concert or cathedral visit. For weddings, a smaller group of five to eight singers tends work very well.

    I attended your evensong at Winchester Cathedral on 29/10 and thoroughly enjoyed it. I have heard many good quality Cathedral choirs but have never heard a full psalm sung unaccompanied. It was very good. I particularly enjoyed the responses and wonder whether Nick Houghton has had them published or whether it’s possible to purchase a copy direct from him

  2. Hi Claire, thanks very much for your kind comments, glad you enjoyed our singing. You can certainly get a copy of Nick’s responses directly from us. If you’d like to drop me an email I’ll let you know the details – robin at robinhoughton.com – best wishes, Robin
