The Beaupre Singers are a mixed choir (SATB) formed in 1987, centred around
Cowbridge, South Wales. We prefer to sing music of the 16th and 17th centuries,
both sacred (motets) and secular (madrigals) but don't spurn music of the 18th,
19th or even 20th centuries. However, we nearly always sing a capella
We are all amateurs.
We generally perform two or three times and year, small scale concerts of informally
The last time we sang in public was at the Christmas Tree Festival, St Augustines Church, Penarth on Saturday 9th December 2017.
We have organised a evening of "Singing the Messiah for Fun" on Wednesday 7th February 2018 at 7.30pm, with a small string orchestra and some of the solos. No rehearsal, no performance, just singing for the pleasure of it. At present we are expecting about 30 or 35 singers. If you would like to join us please email us at the address below.

The name of the choir comes from Beaupre castle, which is a ruined medieval manor house in the fields near Cowbridge, near where the first rehearsals were held. Most people pronounce it the French way to rhyme with so-grey, but we and long-term residents of the area say Bewper, which is the way it was written in the 16th century.
