St Mary's Church Choir - Maintaining the English Choral Tradition
The choir is made up of approximately 20 committed singers, including juniors. The choir sings at the morning service each Sunday in addition to Choral Evensong every second Sunday evening in the month and BCP Holy Communion every fourth Sunday.
For special events the choir forms the core of a larger group, the St Mary's Singers, who meet to perform a Christmas Concert at Vale Royal Abbey each December, a special sequence of music for Palm Sunday evening and a full Choral Evensong in the summer. St Mary's Singers have performed Fauré's Requiem and Stainer's 'Crucifixion' in recent years.
Church choir rehearsals take place in church on Thursday evenings from 7:30pm until about 8.30pm. We always welcome new members in all voice parts. The ability to read music is desirable if not essential.
