In 75 years a lot has happened in the life of the Bedford Messiah Choir, even though our annual performance programme does not change. We have supported many different charities, we have had contributions from many different soloists, and in some years we have enjoyed good press coverage.

As part of our schedule of activities during this special anniversary year we are hoping to use our new website as a way of bringing together and celebrating this historical variety. So if you have any recollections, anecdotes or souvenir material, that you would like to share on this website, please email details to Material from the earlier years of the Choir's existence would be particularly welcome.

For our part we will make a start by working backwards. It will take a little while, but we hope to have made significant progress by the end of March 2012.
