Linden Singers of Hawkes Bay Inc.


The Linden Singers of Hawkes Bay was Bay was formed in 1971 by the present conductor, Basil Brooker. The aim of the choir is to provide an opportunity for people interested in choral music to meet and sing for pleasure and to give enjoyment to those who can be tempted to come and listen from time to time. We aim to achieve the very highest standard of choral singing possible. The choir usually has between 25 and 30 members and performs a wide variety of sacred and secular music including Madrigals, Motets, Nursery Rhymes, Part Songs, Spirituals, Christmas Carols and some longer works. Over the past 39 years the choir has given numerous recitals and concerts and was a regular Broadcaster with Radio New Zealand both at local and national level from 1973 until 1997 when Radio New Zealand stopped recording New Zealand choirs. In 1999 and again in 2007 the Choir was recorded by TVNZ for inclusion in their Praise Be programmes. In recent years the choir has normally presented two public concerts each year, one in May and the second a recital of Christmas music early December. Originally the choir was known as the Hastings Madrigal Singers. Some years ago a change of name was considered desirable because, although we sing some madrigals, these only make up a small part of our repertoire. The Linden Tree has been associated with music over the years and there is a carol entitled "The Linden Tree Carol". The conductor's home is called "Linden" with the front of the property for many years being dominated by a huge Linden tree. This seemed to provide a natural link between the group's name and it's origins. The Choir became an Incorporated Society at the beginning of 1998.
