Exultate Singers was founded to sing Sunday Worship on BBC Radio 4 for a live broadcast in September 2002. It has gone on to give over 100 concerts, broadcasts and other appearances in churches, cathedrals and concert halls in the South West, Wales and London. In October 2009 the choir travelled to Poland and the Czech Republic, giving concerts in Krakow and Prague. In 2007 the choir toured Germany, singing in Bach’s Church in Leipzig and in Berlin, Potsdam and Brandenburg. The choir has given several broadcasts on BBC Radio including a broadcast of Duke Ellington’s Sacred Concert live on Radio 4 from St Martin-in-the-Fields, London.
With a repertoire of over 300 separate pieces - ranging from two-minute anthems to whole works such as Bach’s St Matthew Passion and Duke Ellington’s Sacred Concert - the choir has sung music from plainsong and Renaissance masterpieces to contemporary music, jazz and spirituals in an array of different languages including Czech, Polish, Russian, Latin, Aztec, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, Quechua, Tagalog, Welsh and Icelandic. The choir is active in commissioning new works, and in November 2009 premiered a new commission by Roxanna Panufnik, marking the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.
Exultate Singers’ debut CD, Visions of Peace, was released in 2005 and featured on BBC Radio 3’s The Choir.
