Robert Lewis was Director of Music September 2011 to December 2021, and under his leadership the choirs continued to grow and increase their repertoire. They took part in a performance of Karl Jenkins' Requiem, with the composer in the audience, and also performed in a concert of the Monteverdi Vespers in Guildford Cathedral. The choirs toured Venice in August 2018, and in 2019 made a recording for the BBC2 drama, Mothers Day. The choir tour to the Vatican and Rome for August 2020 was postponed.
