The Village Quire sings in four part harmony without instrumental accompaniment and with three singers to a part, like so many of the 18th century quires.  Each of the programmes includes dramatic readings, given by actor Phil Smith, which have become a popular and essential part of the Quire's performances.  As well as being richly entertaining, these readings help to set the music in a social and historical context for those who are unfamiliar with the genre.

The Quire’s core repertoire is West Gallery Music but the performances also include other styles of folk polyphony.  The power and raw energy of this music, coupled with striking harmonies, make it truly compelling, spell-binding listening.  It is, after all, village music – the music of country people – and is born out of the hardships they endured and the emotions that these created.
