Established in July 2009 by Adrian Green and Alexander Norman, Convivium Singers are a group of musicians who perform a wide variety of vocal and choral music, offering opportunities for young singers at the early stages of performing careers, as well as for talented musicians who may or may not have chosen to pursue careers in music, but wish to continue singing to a high standard. It currently comprises singers from many established choirs and specialises in undiscovered or little-known British music, and in the music of the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries. Their CD Peter Philips: An Englishman Abroad (Latin Motets 1612–1628) (Convivium Records), directed by Alexander Norman, has been warmly welcomed by critics. Convivium Singers have given recitals in the cathedrals of Coventry, Birmingham and Portsmouth (as part of the Portsmouth Festivities), as well as in churches in and around London. In October 2011 they were prizewinners at the Tolosa International Choral Contest in Spain, receiving trophies for their sacred and secular ensemble performances and also giving concerts in churches and concert halls in the surrounding Basque region.
