The Choir

The robed choir is a lively group of enthusiastic singers numbering around 25 adults and 10 children. They sing an anthem at all Sunday morning 10.45 services in the Church and at Evensong, plus at various other services and events throughout the year, their repertoire covering an extensive range of music and styles from Renaissance to modern day. Meeting socially is also very important to the choir, the annual Christmas Party being of particular note! Rehearsals are held on Thursday evenings from 7.45-9.15, and on Sunday mornings at 10 o’clock, before the 10.45 service. Once a month (usually the fourth Sunday), we sing Choral Evensong, for which there is a rehearsal at 5.30. During the year, the choir also sings at other services and events such as those during Holy Week, and have given various concerts (see Past Concerts). New members to the Choir are always very welcome, and it is open to all aged 8+.

If you have any questions, or would like more information, please speak either to the Director of Music, Rupert Forbes (664 3030), or the Organist, Sheila Chisholm (629 9085).
