At this point, the choir had no formal name and discussions were held as to what might be suitable. There was already a Stirling & District Chorus, so a similar name was not really practical. George Farmer suggested the name ‘Rosneath’, at the time one of the sports houses at St Modan’s High School. Following discussion with the choir, the name ‘Rosenethe Singers’ was adopted as ‘a nice sounding name’. The spelling was modified to differentiate from the place Rosneath in Argyll.

Choir name

The choir remained a chamber choir with a repertoire of part songs and motets accompanied by piano. The choir performed in local venues and, such was their reputation, the BBC invited them to make a recording in Glasgow for broadcast.
