They are one of some 40 quires (i.e. singers and instruments combined) which are active countrywide: most are affiliated to the West Gallery Music Association, and include enthusiasts of every religious persuasion and of none. ‘Bristol Harmony’ was formed in 2007 with the intention of being a small, high-quality, democratic group, focused on the music of Bristol and the West of England. Singing and playing from their own music book, compiled by members; they try to enable those who sing by ear to join in, by treating practice meetings as far as possible as workshops so all can learn from scratch.
