Choir Activities in 2017

On Palm Sunday at the evening service we sang the St Luke Passion, attributed to JS Bach.  We are very grateful to Tony Mortimer for his accompaniment and to Joy Burnford for singing the part of the Evangelist.

The choir then rehearsed for Skip’s concerts on 24 and 25 June, singing Rutter’s anthem ‘For the beauty of the Earth’,–‘If you were the only girl in the world’ - a special request from Skip and finishing with a three-part unaccompanied song, ‘Keep you in Peace’  by Sarah Morgan based on a Celtic Blessing. 

In September we sang for the residents at St Dominics.  The residents’ lounge was packed as the residents joined us in singing a wide variety of old popular songs including:  ‘Que sera, sera’, the ‘White cliffs of Dover’,’ Tiptoe thro’ the Tulips’ and the ‘Hippopotamus Song’.

Members of the choir joined with other choir members from the Witham Deanery for the Deanery Evensong on 15th October at St Luke’s, Tiptree.

Our thoughts then turned to preparing for Christmas.  We once again sang for the opening of the Christmas Tree Festival on the Friday evening and for the closing service on the Sunday.  We also sang Christmas carols and songs on the Sunday afternoon for about 40 minutes.  Our theme for our Christmas Tree at the Festival was ‘food’.  We continued this theme for our choice of choir carols at the Carol Service on 17 December.

 

The choir also sang for four weddings during the year.

 

We always welcome new choir members and the only requirement is to enjoy singing! You do not need to be able to read music. 

We rehearse on Thursday evenings from 7:15 – 8pm plus Sunday mornings from
10:15 – 10:45  and members attend when work and other commitments permit.
Members of the choir can be available to sing at Weddings and other special services, please see the 'Contact Us' page for how to get in touch.
