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.
We have come through a difficult time when singing was prevented by the Coronavirus pandemic, then the sad sudden death of our Organist John Maund, followed by a period of leading the congregation in unaccompanied singing. We are delighted now to have found a new Organist in Robin Tugwell, who is helping us extend our repertoire. Over the past three years one contralto and two sopranos have joined the choir, and we would be very glad to welcome more singers to join in our joyful role of offering music as a key part of our prayer and praise.
