About us

Canberra’s smallest chorus, The Pocket Score Company formed to bring the beautiful but rarely-heard sound of the all-male vocal ensemble to Australian audiences. Performing repertoire drawn mainly from the Renaissance, Medieval and Baroque periods, we also explore music from across the centuries. International groups have for many years exploited the rich and robust sound of a countertenor for the top line of vocal music. To our knowledge the approach has been rarely, if ever, tried in Australia. The rich sonority of the Alto-Tenor-Tenor-Bass sound brings new life to traditional choral repertoire. The quartet of singers seamlessly blend voices to produce a new sound in Australian chamber music.

Current members

The Pocket Score Company is: David Yardley countertenor, David Mackay tenor, Paul Eldon tenor, and Ian Blake bass.
