Times & Seasons was founded in 1985 by its present conductor and Musical Director, David Bayley. At first David was able to draw on his wide experience as an organist and choir master to direct the choir, which has now developed and flourished over 30 years. Whilst three founder members still sing with the choir, Times & Seasons have welcomed many new choir members over the years, bringing with them fresh ideas, experiences and expertise. Throughout, David’s ideal of an a cappella choir of high musical standards with an emphasis on blend and balance, has been maintained.
Our name reflects the origin of the choir and is taken from “Times”, referring to the secular world of music as it has developed over the years and the “Seasons” of the Church’s year with their own associated forms of sacred music covering all periods of time.
