Whatever we sing, our performances are designed to enrapture, enlighten and excite our audiences.
Our repertoire ranges from the classics of western sacred music to operetta and close harmony. We love to bring lesser-known works to life and to premiere new pieces.
Major sacred works that Pegasus has performed include Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1610, Rachmaninov’s All-Night Vigil, J.S. Bach’s Magnificat, St John Passion, St Matthew Passion and Mass in B Minor, Handel’s Messiah, Vivaldi’s Gloria and settings of the Requiem mass by Brahms, Duruflé, Fauré and Mozart.
The choir has also performed mass settings by Berkeley, Martin, Kodaly, Palestrina, Roxanna Panufnik, Poulenc, Rheinberger and Stravinsky.
Pegasus is committed to exploring contemporary music and has given first performances of works by John Tavener and Thomas Adès, among others. In 2013 Pegasus commissioned and premiered two works by Francis Grier, A Baby Asleep after Pain and Pax. The choir’s secular repertoire ranges from opera choruses to folksongs and jazz.
