At full strength, we have ten choristers, and are able to sing four-part harmony. As a small group of singers committed to enhancing the worship of the church, we are fairly modest in our choice of music, aspiring to blend our voices in well sung hymns and anthems rather than aiming for spectacular performances. We do look for pieces from a range of sources, based on the traditions of
Ancient & Modern, Hymns and Songs for Refreshing Worship
and including more recent compositions.
The Coronavirus pandemic has of course brought singing to an almost complete standstill. The slight relaxation of regulations for Christmas permitted us to sing two pieces for the Carol Service, for which other recorded music was provided by the St Martin's Singers. A bonus of our brief flurry of activity at Christmas was recruiting a new member, an extra soprano. We would be delighted to welcome more new singers to join the choir as we look to future growth and musical development. We are looking forward to Easter in the hope that we shall be able to celebrate that festival free of the constraints that covid has imposed on us all.
