St Thomas Choir is currently seeking new singers in all vocal parts. We're a friendly group who meet at 9:15am every Sunday in the choir vestry and rehearse the hymns and anthem for the Communion service. No previous experience is required; the ability to read music would be advantageous - but not essential. Music is an important part of our worship at St Thomas and it is imperative that we sustain this wonderful Anglican tradition for future years.
The central philosophy to music at St Thomas is that it involves the congregation. Music for services draws on several traditions including Iona and Taize; but, at heart, accessible traditional Anglican. The choir meets every week; this is currently a nucleus of between eight to ten singers who assist in the congregational singing of a mass setting and an anthem during the Communion. In addition, we have a number of larger services where a number of singers come and join us from other churches and choirs; for example for Midnight Mass and Patronal Festival Choral Evensong.
If you are interested in joining the choir or would like to find out more please feel free to contact Gill Tucker, Director of Music: email@example.com
