Welcome to the website of

Sotto Voce

- friends who love to sing together...

Sotto Voce at Bunbury


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....


Our Services

Sotto Voce are renowned in the region for making a difference at special occasions, especially weddings at which we have extensive experience.  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 arrange special items just for you, often at short notice. We have performed far and wide from Ullswater to Essex, and from the Wirral to Yorkshire!

"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 .............. 

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."

Annual Carol Service of the Institution of Civil Engineers

St. Ann's Church, Manchester

ICE Concert

Please pass on my thanks to yourselves and all your colleagues for the performance on Thursday night.  I thought it was fantastic and many people afterwards complimented the choir on an excellent performance. There was certainly no evidence of hoarse voices from where I was sat...  I didn't appreciate that the version of Wonderland was arranged by one of your own! - fantastic.
