See History page to look further back in time

The choir was part of a project to tour East Timor in August/September of 2018. This project is running again to visit East Timor in 2020 (AUSC Timor 2020) though activity is suspended until further notice and 2021 or 2022 seem more possible.

The Songs page includes links to audio tracks of a few songs as well as a list of our CDs and an almost complete list of songs, their cover notes, lyrics and translations.

The Links page includes links to video clips of the choir as well as collaborating groups and musicians.

We have an email group (GoogleGroups) for members which we will describe down the track. We will cover what’s in the group, how to join the group, how to change your preferred email address for sending and receiving group emails, and how to regain access to your account if you lose it.
