Welcome to the website of

Sotto Voce

- friends who love to sing together...

"We make a difference!"

We are a group of singing friends based in the North West of England who enjoy making a musical contribution to the atmosphere of a special occasion. We are all experienced choral singers who are also soloists. If you are looking for a choir, a soloist or a cabaret group for your special event we are able, in a short time, to put together a programme to suit you. We cover Cheshire, Manchester and Lancashire, but will travel further afield by negotiation.


A short video of us performing at the Ideal Home Exhibition at Event City may be found on our facebook page (link below)

We sang at the Institution of Civil Engineers Christmas Carol Concert in St. Ann's Church, St. Ann's Square.

Wirral wedding

"Everyone mentioned how great the music was and Judith said how wonderful it was. It really made her day and even the non church goers really enjoyed the service particularly because of the music. It's always difficult to get the balance right."


 Sotto Voce are deeply saddened by the passing of friend and colleague bass Alan Gee. Alan and his wife Helen recently celebrated the Blessing of their Marriage surrounded by family and friends.

"I wanted to contact you and say how fantastic you were at the wedding. You really were amazing and we have had so many compliments on the music. I love the Eric Whitacre piece in particular and was so happy that we were back from signing the register to hear you sing it. Our guests commented on how well you sang but also how well you led the congregation. I felt that you added so much to the ceremony .............. 


Our Services


Sotto Voce are renowned in the region for making a difference at special occasions, especially weddings at which we have extensive experience.  We are equally experienced at providing singers for funerals,and can usually provide a choir at short notice as we did for a Romany funeral in Northwich on March 27th. Our repertoire (sacred and secular) ranges from early music, through opera, oratorio, Gilbert and Sullivan, musicals and the lighter repertoire.  We have the expertise to prepare special items just for you. We have performed far and wide from Ullswater to Essex, and from the Wirral to Yorkshire at a variety of venues!

We have recently provided the singing at a Requiem Mass in Clayton, Manchester, and returned to the Wirral for a funeral on 12th June, and at a funeral at Connah's Quay on 24th July 2015.

I cannot recommend you enough and will definitely pass on your names to anyone that I hear of who is looking for a choir."

"We just wanted to thank you for making the service absolutely perfect.
It was everything we could have wished for. I don't think we will ever forget signing the register whilst listening to Suo Gan. We received so many compliments all day about the service, the choir and the music - I can't actually put into words how brilliant you all were. You were all absolutely wonderful and I want to thank you all for providing us with so many happy memories. Thank you for suggesting music and for being so helpful from start to finish."


"The Song Is No More"

In 2014 Sotto Voce were asked to record this wonderful piece by Anna Drackley, dedicated to her beloved granddaughter.  The work now forms the accompaniment to a powerful visual presentation created by Anna and her husband David.  They regularly deliver their presentations, largely based on their extensive world travels to, for example, U3A groups.


Sotto Voce are delighted to recommend Zapimage for your affordable wedding photography needs -
