Corista are a group of six singers based in Hebden Bridge and Todmorden in West Yorkshire. We practice every week, roaming from one home to the other. We sing a wide range of songs some protest songs and some for fun, always finding something to challenge us.
We also specialise in Chartist songs and have been involved in reviving songs from a rare Chartist songbook. The songbook was found in an archive in Todmorden library. We performed three songs from this book for the Radio 4 program, “Sunday” on 24th February, 2013.
