The Summertown Singers are a chamber choir drawn from Summertown Choral Society in north Oxford U.K.

Formed in 2001, the Choir has performed almost every summer in Spain, Italy, France and Latvia, as well as venues closer to home.

Their conductor, Duncan Saunderson, was a member of the world famous New College Choir, Oxford (established 1379) and they are looking forward to giving a short recital of unaccompanied sacred Iberian polyphony interspersed with beautiful English madrigals and part songs, serious and humorous.
