HCS Oral History Project

In 2019, some 30 HCS members, including our conductor Derek Harrison, were interviewed as part of an oral history project run by the University of Hertfordshire. They talked about their experience of being part of the choir over the years. Have a listen to what they have to say by clicking here.
