Founded in 2001 by its musical director, Ian Higginson, Jubilate draws its members from Cheltenham, Gloucester and the Cotswolds.
Our repertoire encompasses both sacred and secular music and spans from the 16th century to the present day. Jubilate has sung in many of the country’s cathedrals and abbeys, including St. Paul’s Cathedral, London, Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral, St. Giles Cathedral Edinburgh, Bath Abbey, Westminster Abbey, Christ Church Cathedral Oxford, and the cathedrals at Bristol, Worcester, Brecon and Hereford. It has enjoyed highly successful tours to Scotland, Holland, Belgium, Liverpool, Chester, Cambridge and in both 2007 and 2011 to Paris where the choir has sung Mass in the Cathedrale Notre-Dame de Paris and performed recitals at the Eglise St Severin, La Madeleine and the American Church, all in the centre of Paris.
The choir has three recordings available, Nowell, Nowell! a selection of Christmas music, Shades of Jazz/Requiem featuring original pieces by Ian Higginson, and recorded in 2015, The Joy of Christmas, all now available from choir members.
