For nearly thirty years, The Arcadian Singers have been invited to Ampleforth Abbey in Yorkshire as the resident choir for their Easter Triduum retreat. During the long weekend, members past and present come together to sing services and a concert for the many hundreds of guests who attend.
For the singers it's a chance to make music away from the pressures of term and working life, have fun and take in the gorgeous scenery. Ampleforth has also proven to be a great way of staying in touch with those who have left; indeed, some of the Arcadians who join us have been taking part in the weekend since the link with the Abbey was first established.
In 2019, we celebrated the 25th anniversary of our partnership by recording an as-live CD, which was generously supported by a crowdfunding campaign and may be obtained here.
In 2023 the Triduum will take place from the 6th to 9th April. You can find out more from the Ampleforth Website, and if you are an interested singer please don't hesitate to get in touch via our web form or email.
