The Gabrieli Choir, a Budapest-based amateur chamber choir specializing in the study and performance of sacred music drawn from the repertoire of Anglican Cathedrals. The Choir's Musical Director is Richárd Sólyom. Currently, the Choir comprises around twenty-four experienced singers. The emphasis is on English music from the sixteenth century to the present day: old works are frequently juxtaposed with new; English pieces are contrasted with non-English pieces, and the whole is set in the context of the Anglican tradition.
