ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Marionettes Chorale was formed in 1963 by Jocelyn Pierre and June Williams-Thorne to compete in the 1964 Music Festival. Since 1974, The Marionettes have been directed and conducted by Gretta Taylor, assisted by Susan Dore and a committee headed by founder member Joanne Mendes. In 1995, the Marionettes Youth Chorale was formed. It comprises youngsters from some thirty learning institutions in north Trinidad, and appears regularly alongside its adult counterpart.

The Marionettes’ repertoire spans a wide range of musical styles, from 16th-century Gabrielli to 20th-century Messiaen, as well as opera, spirituals, Caribbean and international folk songs, and calypso. It has always championed Trinidad and Tobago’s music, which it has performed extensively on overseas tours. The Marionettes were one of the first to blend voices with steel in the 1960s, and have been accompanied by many top steel orchestras — Pan Am North Stars, Trinidad All Stars, Renegades, Renegades Youth Orchestra, Desperadoes and Skiffle Bunch.
