Anya soon found there was a call for a more advanced ensemble and so, in 2019, she began Arnos Vocale. This talented group of just six auditioned singers gave their first stunning performance alongside Nightingale Valley Choir to a packed audience in St Anne's Church, Brislington after only two months' rehearsals. They have swelled to around a dozen skilled singers who perform throughout the year, delighting Festival and concert audiences with their beautiful singing and varied repertoire.
Classical items by Bach, Byrd, Gibbons, Mozart, Brahms, Faure, Vaughan Williams, Jazz arrangements of Gershwin, Porter, Ellington, Kern Beautiful folksongs from around the world
