The Cambridge Taverner Choir celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2011  with a series of concerts embracing many of the choir's favourite works, focusing especially on the music of Monteverdi, Victoria and Taverner.
In 2010, the choir performed in Winchester's Hyde900 Festival celebrating the 900th anniversary of the foundation of Hyde Abbey and the final official burial of King Alfred the Great in 1110.
The year 2009 saw the choir return to its core repertoire of Renaissance polyphony, in two concerts which draw on the music closest to the hearts of its members and Director.
The highlight of 2008 was a performance of Monteverdi's Vespers with The Musical and Amicable Society (www.amicables.co.uk) as instrumentalists.
In 2007, the choir performed in the Winchester Festival, and achieved a long-standing ambition to sing Britten's St Nicolas, with an orchestra specially-recruited children's choir.
The choir celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2006 by performing the Bach Motets in two concerts, both in the Cambridge Summer Music Festival, with guest accompanists John Butt and Stephen Farr.
