MEN & BOYS’ CHOIR
The choir of 14 trebles and 12 men boasts a wide repertoire, ranging from
The choir works as a full choir of boys and men singing together but also as two separate choirs, Boys’ Choir and Men’s Choir, who provide music for services in their own right. These services include the 1100hrs Sunday Parish Eucharist and a weekly choral Sunday evening service (1830hrs) which covers various formats – including Choral Evensong, Compline (sung by the men of the choir), Rejoice in the Lord (a thirty minute service of hymns, anthems and readings) and Evening Eucharists as well as specially compiled services for Harvest Festival, All Souls, Remembrance Sunday, Candlemas, Passion Sunday, Palm Sunday, Easter Sunday and numerous others. Indeed, the boys and men regularly provide as many as eight different anthems along with psalms, canticles and settings of the Communion service on any normal Sunday, The full choir sings for Holy Trinity’s customary trilogy of carol services – in celebration of Advent, Christmas and Epiphany. Holy Trinity Church is the only church in the country to offer a choir-led carol service on Christmas Day itself.
The choir has made eight recordings and has featured on radio and television. Last year the choir featured on BBC Radio 4’s live broadcast “Sunday Worship”, “Desert Island Discs” & “Something Understood”.
The boys and men of the choir sing at weddings throughout the year and the men of the choir are often involved in travelling to sing for weddings and special services at neighbouring churches.
Established in September 2008, this choir of 19 members provides music for one monthly Sunday 1100hrs service and/or one monthly Sunday evening service (1830hrs) – singing as many as four anthems each time. The Girls’ Choir has now begun joining with the Men & Boys’ Choir for occasional special services, such as the Christmas Day Carol Service and the Celebration for Easter Day.
We have recently welcomed a number of new members to all three choirs, but we are always delighted to welcome new recruits. If you are interested in becoming a member of the Boys’ Choir, the Girls’ Choir or the Men’s Choir, please phone 01628 522593 or email click here
