St Andrew and St Mark’s Choir
The Parish has a well-established choral tradition, and new members to the choir are always welcome. The choir rehearses every week on Friday evening (7.30 pm) and sings at the Sunday morning Eucharist.
The choir also provides a large musical contribution to all the major services at Christmas, Easter and other festivals. The choir sings choral evensong about once a month and also at weddings. The music is rooted in the greatest traditions of church music, from Tudor times onwards, but with some modern twists from time to time, and the choir are always learning new pieces, sometimes prompted by the Director of Music, sometimes in response to a request for a couple who will be married.
In autumn 2016, we began a new venture with a children’s singing group.
See ‘Parish news’ for more details.
There are two excellent three-manual organs by Hunter and Mander.
“As important to me as the music, was the warmth of the welcome I received by the choir and the wider church community” – Sue Sabourin, choir member since 2010.
