Ashley Voices & Music Consort

V. & M. (as it is affectionately known), is an amateur choir; but it maintains professional standards, under its founder and Director: Elizabeth Hawley.

Over the years it has welded into a community of enthusiastic members with a great team spirit!

The repertoire is very wide, ranging from mediaeval to Benjamin Britten; but it has always been most at home with music from the English madrigalian era, both secular & religious. Frequent recitals are given, in halls & churches; for example it has been occasionally invited to sing all the Sunday Services in the Cathedral at Chester.
