About the St Oswald Singers/Razor Sharp
The St Oswald Singers (or Razor Sharp for Barbershop purposes!) had its beginnings at Westbury-on-Trym Parish Church (where Nigel Davies was then Director of Music) as part of the fundraising for the 1985 roof appeal and was initially a group of men’s voices. However, the slightly later addition of female voices gave the group much more musical flexibility, and from Choral Evensongs at Gloucester and Bristol Cathedrals to a performance at the Weston-super-Mare Playhouse and weddings as far afield as Stafford and Kent, the singers pride themselves on their versatility.
In recent years, rather than practise on a regular basis, we tend to get together for events such as this, but have a regular booking to sing at Thornbury Castle each Christmas Eve.
