St Peter’s Choir

sp_166St Peter’s choir leads the worship at our 11.00am and 6.30pm services every Sunday, when Mattins and Evensong (and, twice a month, Choral Communion) are usually sung according to the Book of Common Prayer.

The choir has a longstanding place in St Peter’s history. Our choral repertory is notable for its variety, spanning as it does some six centuries, and for its quantity, comprising a still growing collection of hundreds of anthems and service settings.

The choir rehearses from 7.30pm till 9.00pm every Thursday evening. We actively seek new members who will enjoy the experience of regular rehearsal and performance in a friendly and supportive environment.

sp_091St Peter’s pays the younger members of the choir in recognition of the time they give to us. The church also runs a generous sponsorship scheme for especially talented youngsters who wish to take advantage of the experience and musical training we can offer.

Potential new recruits of all ages (or, if preferred, their parents) are warmly invited to contact John Longstaff, to discuss matters further on 01423 862250 or mobile 07974 742991.
