In addition to supporting our church services, this year the choir has welcomed choirs from Witham, Tiptree and Rivenhall for Simon’s installation; has joined with other choirs in the Deanery to
sing Stainer’s Crucifuxion at Witham; has participated in the Deanery Evensong; and will be welcoming and joining with the choir from Rivenhall for carol services at Rivenhall and Kelvedon on 21st
This year the Deanery Evensong was held at Chelmsford Cathedral as we are marking 100 years of the Chelmsford Diocese. Within the service, the combined choir of over 60 members sang a setting of
the Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis by Sir Alfred Herbert Brewer and the anthem ‘The Peace of God’ by John Rutter. This was the third of the Deanery Evensongs that were established by the Rural Dean,
Geoff Bayliss. Our choir sang the anthem again at our 11am service on Sunday, 16 November.
A few members of the choir have also participated in the Bach Choir’s ‘Come and Sing’ days in London, where their conductor, David Hill, rehearses the choir of over 300 singers. The day
culminates in singing the work we have been preparing. These days are inspirational. Along with learning the music and how to sing it we also gain singing tips. In May this extended choir sang
Mozart’s Requiem and in October Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana.
Once again the church choir will be participating in the Christmas Tree Festival – we shall be reflecting our theme of a Victorian Christmas by singing Victorian carols at the opening
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.
