The popularity of Tarantara is in no small way due to the great variation of music the choir performs and their reportoire spans songs from musicals to the classics, from old to new, from serious to not-so-serious!  Below is a small selection from our recent and current repertoire:-

  • 'Something Inside so Strong , by Labi Siffre  in a very stirring arrangement 
  • 'City of Stars' from the La La Land, arranged by Jay Althouse.  Surprisingly Charming 
  • 'Hallelujah' by Leonard Cohen,  arr.  Roger Emerson
  • 'Cantique de Jean Racine'  Gabriel Faure , a chance for accompanist Chris Long to shine
  • 'Flight Song' by Kim Andre Arnesen, a firm Choir favourite
  • 'Dirait-on'  a challenging piece for the choir, but we do love a challenge 
  • 'What a Wonderful World', made famous by Louis Armstrong, arr Mark Hayes
  • 'The Wayfaring Stranger, a traditional American Folk Song arr Greg Gilpin
  • 'The Seal Lullaby' by Eric Whicacre, a beautiful and evocative song of the sea
  • 'Let the River run' by Carly Simon, arr Jay Althouse and Gary Griffiths  A real foot tapper
  • 'I Got Rhythm' George and Ira Gershwin , arr Mark Hayes  Much loved jazz standard from 1930
  • 'World in Union'  by Gustav Holst via Charles Skarbek, the 1991 Rugby World Cup and Gary Griffiths 
  • 'The Ground'  from Sunrise Mass by Ola Gjeilo gorgeous harmonies, we love singing this piece
  • 'The Skye Boat Song' a  traditional Scottish fold song in a lovely new arrangement by Jay Althouse 

Tarantara perform the complete concert - as well as their stirring full-choral pieces there are soloists, duets, sextets, barber shop, comedy, etc all from the ranks of the choir. 

This most versatile choir will get any audience foot tapping, smiling - even shedding the odd tear - with their style and delivery of a range of music to suit all tastes.
