Chamber choir from the West of England

Cappella Nova is a chamber choir of around 25 experienced singers, committed to singing for pleasure and for the enjoyment of others. Founded in 2001, the choir sings a wide-ranging and eclectic mix of sacred and secular music under our conductor and musical director Tony Shield. We regularly perform in venues throughout Bath, Somerset and North Wiltshire.

Our concerts are often in support of a local or national charity - to date we have raised over £10,000 for good causes.

We are always interested to hear from experienced singers who might like to join Cappella Nova. Information for new and current members, including the rehearsal diary, is on the Membership page. 

Cappella Nova regularly perform concerts in churches and other venues in the region. Concert programmes range from sacred music to madrigals, folk song arrangements and popular song.

Cappella Nova is experienced at singing for church services, from Choral Evensong and Carol services in local parish churches to weekends as visiting choir at major cathedrals.

Cappella Nova can provide choral music for your wedding. We have experience of church and civil ceremonies, and can advise on the choice of music for your celebrations.

Our Musical Director

Tony Shield has conducted Cappella Nova since 2001. His first love was as an orchestral musician, playing the horn in the National Youth Orchestra. However, singing was always an important strand in his musical education and at Cambridge, where he read music he sang the daily services in his college choir at Cambridge. During his career in music education,  Tony conducted choirs regularly in venues such as Birmingham Town Hall, Eton College Chapel and The Royal Festival Hall in London. Since founding Cappella Nova, Tony has conducted the choir in a wide repertoire of music mostly a cappella across Bath and north Wiltshire.
