Polymnia is a chamber choir of twenty-three voices based in the Milton Keynes area. The choir was formed in 2006,
and is named after the Greek muse of sacred song. We sing a very wide variety of music to a high standard, under
the musical direction of John Byron. We have just returned from a tour of Southern Spain, where we had the rare
privilege of giving a concert in Granada cathedral. We also sang in the amazing acoustic of the caves at Nerja.

being prepared for a concert tour to Spain. They had been very well rehearsed by their own director, John Byron, and
the singers were quick to respond to my own ideas and suggestions. This made for a very enjoyable and rewarding
