Death in Chorus is the seventh episode of the ninth series of the popular ITV crime drama Midsomer Murders and originally aired on 3rd September 2006.


DCI Barnaby and DC Jones investigate the murder of Connor Simpson, a member of the Midsomer Worthy choir that had been rehearsing for an upcoming competition. The man was found in his home, bludgeoned to death with a poker. Simpson had received an apparently threatening note attached to a pig's heart. Soon after all members of the choir, Joyce Barnaby included, receive notes saying they're next. When local birdwatcher and photographer Sam Judd is also found dead—the victim of a 12 gauge shotgun—Barnaby is convinced that the two deaths are somehow linked. When they learn of Simpson's criminal convictions—and the reasons he went to jail—they are set on the path to solving the mystery.
