choral music







Our purposes

Our purposes are set out in the Chorali Fiscus constitution and are summarised as advancing the enjoyment and education of the public in the performance of choral and similar classical music.

We provide financial assistance in the form of grants and or loans to applicants of non- commercial or charitable status. We shall print, publish and issue publications dealing with matters of interest to members and the public. In addition, we invite donations from the public to supplement our own funds and we may also promote and hold lectures, discussions, conferences and meetings and to encourage generally the objects of Cholari Fiscus.

Our Focus

Our focus is to provide financial support to organisations in the East Dorset area, but we feel it best to not restrict ourselves geographically from a legal point of view.

As a corollary, our focus is on choral works, but we would not automatically exclude other works from the classical music genre.

Our location

We are based in Bournemouth, Dorset.


Grange Choral Society

Chorali Fiscus will help with the costs of concerts in Christchurch Priory  throughout the 2019 and 2020 season.

Grange Choral Society is very ably led by Marcio de Silva who was appointed musical director in January 2012 whilst undertaking his post graduate studies in conducting at the Royal College of Music. Marcio achieved his masters in July 2013 and the choir is benefiting enormously from his passion and precision as a conductor. From his own background as a singer Marcio is passing on to the choir his experience in vocal projection and tonal quality. 

See our Diary page for programme of GCS concerts.

Our latest

Our latest Encouragement

Chorali Fiscus will help with the extra costs of a concert in Christchurch Priory to celebrate the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth. The Bournemouth Bach Coir will perform Beethoven’s Mass in C and the Piano Concerto No 5. 

The celebration of Beethoven’s birth will attract a large audience to this concert. The piano concerto is a favourite and will inspire our audience to appreciate choral work and become interested in attending more concerts.

Further details about the Bournemouth Bach Choir may be found here.

Music for a
Summer's Evening

Grange Choral Society conducted by the multi talented Marcio Da Silva, 

who delighted a packed Priory by turning to the audience and singing a Baritone solo during the very popular previous Concert, A Night At The Opera, this programme is a wonderful selection of music performed by the Choir and the Priory Organ. Christopher Dowie, a well known brilliant accompanist, conductor, organist and composer will be performing on the magnificent Nicholson 4,500 pipe Organ:- Walton’s well known Orb and Sceptre written for the Coronation of Elizabeth II, and his Crown Imperial, performed more recently for the wedding of Prince William and Catherine. Elgar’s much loved and rousing Pomp and Circumstance March No.4. Amongst the choral pieces the choir will perform is the Chilcott Gloria, an uplifting and utterly jubilant work. Rutter’s ever popular setting of the Te Deum. Parry’s Songs of Farewell, a nostalgic reflection of a life filled with music. Stanford’s 3 Motets which bring a freshness and vitality and are held in the highest regard. An evening to remember well after Summer is over.
