Glorious Life Chorus

Here are some of the songs with their lyrics

Building Our Own Future is the song we chose to film as a virtual choir when we realised that, due to ongoing Covid19 restrictions...

Dare to Believe was first performed in 1987 when NSUK (SGI-UK`s previous name) staged the musical ‘Alice’ in the Hammersmith Odeon and more recently by members of SGI-UK`s Youth division as part of the Generation Hope activity in March 2018....

"Songs have a mysterious power that can overcome any differences, immediately connecting people's hearts…Songs can create solid life-to-life bonds, lifting our spirits and making us stronger”. (SGI newsletter 8640)"

SGI-UK's Glorious Life Chorus has

   1. life-enhancing upbeat songs in a cross section of musical styles


   2. a more formal series of four choral and two non choral pieces representing the heritage of Nichiren Buddhism and the SGI.

The chorus rehearses monthly at Taplow Court (SGI-UK`s national centre). It is an unauditioned community choir open to all members of SGI-UK. It has 90 members who come from all over the UK, in four vocal sections: Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Bass.

Please contact the Chorus if you would like to join.

The Chorus performs throughout the year to groups of members of SGI-UK. The Chorus is always ready to take part and contribute to wonderful singing initiatives out in society.

Recent performances include…. On May 21st 2017 the Chorus participated in a one day international inter-faith event at the British Museum. This was the 6th annual event organised by `Faiths in Tune`. The Glorious Life Chorus performed four songs in the Great Court. 18,000 people visited the British Museum on that day.

Two months later on July 9th the Chorus performed in the open at a very hot and crowded Camden Market on the market stage and then at the Roundhouse. This was part of an inter Choral event involving Choruses from all over the UK organised by Voices Now.

Please contact the Chorus if you intend to publicly perform any of this repertoire
