The Choir


Choral Evensong at St. Michael's

At St. Michael and All Angels church we are lucky enough to have a robed choir.

The church choir faithfully leads the singing at the church services week by week.  As well as singing the Hymns and Service setting they often sing an anthem whilst Communion is being distributed.  They typically practise on every 2nd Wednesdays at 8pm although there are some variations as shown below, or check here for this week.  The choir sings two services (Parish Mass and Evensong) on most Sundays.  Once a month (on the third Sunday) they are joined by singers from other nearby choirs to sing a ‘Cathedral Style’ Evensong typically including an introit and anthem as well as singing the Psalm and Canticles and four hymns, (see below for dates).

The choir embraces a wide variety of church music - some old, some new.  Larger choral works are also sung, these have included Stainer's Crucifixion, Maunder's Olivet to Calvary, Faure's Requiem, Gounod's St Cecelia Mass, and Haydn's Creation again with a choir augmented by other local singers.

Anyone interested in joining the choir, (either regularly or for the monthly Choral Evensongs), and are reasonable singers are very welcome to join - please contact the Organist and Director of Music, Michael Macey at church on a Sunday or during one of the choir practices on a Wednesday evening.

Dates for 2020 practices (all Wednesdays 20:00 to 21:15 unless stated otherwise)


While the suspension of all services is in effect, choir practices are suspended until further notice.

Neither will we be singing Stainer’s Crucifixion on Good Friday.
