In February 2016, David established Chromata Voices of Purbeck, a daytime chamber choir based in Swanage.
The choir’s focus is broad, across 7 seven centuries of classical choral music, from the 15th century to the present day. Its main aim is to provide challenges to its members, broaden their knowledge of choral music and improve their skills in singing in a smaller ensemble.
Chromata Voices of Purbeck is a mixed choir (SATB) of about 24 singers. Its members need to be strong sight-readers or quick learners, as it aims to cover a lot of repertoire over time.
The choir rehearses at 2.00pm on Mondays, in Swanage.

The following recordings were made during rehearsals in March/April 2016.
