Pieces of Eight
St. Peter’s Church, Stockton

Pieces of Eight, an “a cappella” singing group based in Stockton-on-Tees, was formed in the mid-1970’s by a group of eight choirmen from St Peter’s Church Choir in Stockton. Within a few years sopranos were added to the group in order to extend the repertoire that now embraces a wide range of music covering five centuries.


Aims of the Association
Members consist of those who simply enjoy listening to live music in a relaxed atmosphere
as well singers and performers (absolute beginners to professionals).
In spite of its name, in addition to organ recitals and choral music
the Association organises performances of instrumental and vocal music
 including solo performances and, occasionally, illustrated talks on church music.
New members are needed!
