St.Gregory’s is very fortunate to have a dedicated 4-part SATB choir. An anthem is sung at most Eucharistic services and the choir leads the worship with a range of choral settings.

It plays a major part in each of the main Festivals including Christmas, Holy Week and Easter. From time to time we sing Evensong and Compline, and join forces with other local choirs to sing music on a larger scale.

Repertoire ranges from early plainsong and through the ages to the present day; familiar and unfamiliar, accompanied and unaccompanied. Musical challenges are all part of the diet.

Rehearsals are friendly, good-humoured and purposeful. The aim is to sing with understanding and enjoyment, and always as musically as possible.

We welcome new singers and only ask three things:

  • The ability to pitch accurately.
  • A good degree of commitment.
  • Willingness to be part of a happy, dedicated team who are receptive to rehearsing a variety of pieces spanning over 1,000 years of musical history.

Rehearsals are held every Thursday 19.00-20.00. Sunday 09.45 ahead of the Morning Service at 10.00.
