The Imogen Children's Chorale is named after the English conductor,
composer and music educator, Imogen Holst.
Since its foundation in 1987, the choir has gained a reputation for a
characteristic warmth and sweetness of sound and for its ability to
perform with equal charm and vitality in a wide range of choral styles.
Choristers' ages range from nine to seventeen years, and sing in
original languages an extensive repertoire which includes Early and
Renaissance music, the Bach Motets, Oratorio, Folk music and a wide
range of nineteenth and twentieth century incidental music.
They are perhaps best known and loved for their performances of
Benjamin Britten's works for children - the Missa Brevis in D and Noye's
Fludde, and especially their traditional performance of his A
Ceremony of Carols at St John's Cathedral in Brisbane every
