Cambridge Chord Company

Cambridge Chord Company

.

Cambridge Chord Company is the foremost men's chorus of its kind in Europe. We aim to promote the enjoyment of close-harmony singing through a spirit of friendship, musical excellence, comedy, and love of a good song.

With our roots in the traditional four-part harmonies of the barbershop style, developed further by our musical director Bob Croft, extending the success of his predecessor and our first director Paul Davies, we have built our repertoire to include a variety of musical genres.

We have performed and competed in England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Eire, the USA, the Netherlands and Canada. We have sung in auditoriums and bars, football stadiums and fish-markets and even a swimming pool. We sang to a statue of Elvis Presley in Memphis, Tennessee.

Our aim is to entertain our audiences through the unique power of the human voice in a manner they have never experienced before.

Cambridge Chord Company : All The Right Moves

Review: "Moves" is the second CD by 1999-2000 champion British Barbershop chorus CCC, and it gets off on the right foot with a hilarious "Mother-In-Law Medley" that puts new words and meanings to "Yes Sir, That's My Baby," "Our Love Is Here to Stay" and "Hello Mother, Hello Father." 13 winning tunes follow, some favorites: the classic "Blue Velvet," "Just A Cottage Small," "Here's That Rainy Day," "Sunday Medley," "All the Things You Are," "Blue Shadows on the Trail," the folk hit "Today" (While the Blossoms Still Cling to the Vine), "I Wish You Love," the Motown hit "My Girl," and "Last Laugh Medley." We like to think of CCC as the "Little David" chorus, 40 guys outsinging choruses 2 or 3 times their size. "Moves" is great entertainment by a very special Barbershop chorus from Britain!

Songlist: Mother-In-Law Medley, Blue Velvet, Just A Cottage Small, Here's That Rainy Day, I Only Have Eyes for You, Sunday Medley, All the Things You Are, Blue Shadows on the Trail, Today (While the Blossoms Still Cling to the Vine), Running Scared, I Wish You Love, My Girl, Skye Boat Song, Last Laugh Medley

Cambridge Chord Company : If You Go Down To The Woods

Review: 40-strong, all male Cambridge Chord Company (CCC), the 1999-2000 champion British Barbershop chorus, has probably won more awards than any other chorus of its kind since it sang its first harmonies 12 years ago. In 1994 CCC became the first small chorus ever to win the Silver Medal at the British Association of Barbershop Singers' (BABS) annual convention. Often competing against choirs four or five times their size, CCC were BABS silver medalists three times, BABS Chorus Champions in 1999 and 2002, Millennium Joint Barbershop Harmony Chorus Champions 2000 and European Champions in 2001. In July 2003 CCC placed 11th in the International Barbershop Competition in Montreal, the highest place a British Chorus has ever achieved! Here are 13 spirited songs from the group's repertoire-some nice medleys, including "Sweet Sixteen Medley," "Button Up Medley" and "Tramp Medley." "Roses of Picardy," "Do I Love You?," an impressive "My Funny Valentine," a very funny "Welsh Rhapsody," "Raining In My Heart," "My Ship," "Ol' Man River," "Shangri-La" and the title tune, "Teddy Bear's Picnic." This is powerful, ringing, funny-the stuff great live performances are made of. British Barbershop is coming!

Songlist: Sweet Sixteen Medley, Roses of Picardy, Button Up Medley, Do I Love You?, My Funny Valentine, Welsh Rhapsody, The Sweetest Story Ever Told, Tramp Medley, Raining In My Heart, My Ship, Ol' Man River, Shangri-la, Teddy Bears' Picnic
