We are very proud of the strong tradition of music within All Saints' Church. We have a wonderful four manual Hill organ and a four-part robed choir of approximately 20 members, affiliated to the Royal School of Church Music. The choir forms an important part of Sunday morning worship and Easter and Christmas services, as well as weddings, funerals and baptisms.
The choir consists of boys, girls and adults, with a wide variety of musical backgrounds and experience but with a common love of music and of singing together in church.
Choir practice takes place every Wednesday from 7.30pm - 8.30pm and new members are always welcome (children must be aged at least six) - just get in touch with Tim Brewster, our Choirmaster and Organist, for a chat.
In 2014 the choir recorded a CD of Stainer's "Crucifixion" (with Paul Edwards playing the organ), and Allegri's "Miserere Mei, Deus" and in December 2015 they released a Nine Lessons and Carols CD of Christmas music and readings, including congregational carols. Both CDs are £10 each, available from church.
We're very proud that Louise Nichols Cook, who grew up singing soprano with us, is now at university in Nottingham and is a Choral Scholar at St Barnabas Cathedral in the city. Well done Louise, it's lovely to have you back singing with us whenever you can!
