This invited choir is drawn from church choirs over a wide area including some who travel over 40 miles to sing Choral Evensong. There is a single one-hour rehearsal to cover all the music required for Choral Evensong – introit, preces and responses, psalm, canticles (Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis), anthem and hymns.
The Evensong Choir Members Page provides information about music for the next service involving the Evensong Choir, including sheet music and practice recordings.
The Evensong Choir is usually 30-strong but draws from over 70 invited, highly experienced and able singers who read music and have a high level of sight-reading ability.
This choir currently sings at Choral Evensong on the 2nd Sunday of the month alternating between the Church of Ss Philip and James and All Saints Parish Church. The choir rehearses at 5 pm before a 6.30 pm Choral Evensong service. It has also appeared at the annual Carol Service at Ss Philip and James, augmented and accompanied by the Parish Orchestra.
