The Choir provides music at the 10:30am and 6:30pm services and other special services as required. The music ranges from traditional chant settings of psalms and the canticles through to modern hymns, and most things in between. From time to time we supplement this with anthems and festival settings.
The Choir meets for practice on Sunday mornings at 9.30am in the lower hall.
The choir is looking for some new members. We are particularly looking for Sopranos, Altos and children (boys and girls from the age of 7). Children can still attend their group on a Sunday morning during the service. The choir sings at both the morning Eucharist and at Evensong, often singing the Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis to a setting and an anthem. You do not need to be a professional singer: all you need is an enjoyment of singing (even just a little bit). In return you will learn a lot about music and will enjoy the social life of the choir. Of course, some commitment is needed, but it is well worth the effort!
We are currently looking for a new Director of Music to replace Martyn Marshall who has moved on to educational pastures new. If you would like to join the choir (or apply for the post of Director of Music) please phone 01436 672500. We will be delighted to welcome you.
