The Choir at St. Mary's
Music at St Mary`s has had long standing tradition, the Church choir has been foremost in upholding this. Over the past few year the choir has become much smaller, but we continue to lead the singing for the services, and strive to provide an anthem each week to sing during communion. Once a month we sing at evensong, sometimes if possible making it a full choral evensong.
It was really good on Sunday 29th September to have Ethen Powell enrolled as a full member of our choir. Ethen came to us from All Saints Northampton, where he was deputy head choirboy, but because of his other music commitments it was better for him to come and join us, (our gain). Another new member Mandy Berry has joined our alto section. WELCOME!!
SINGERS FROM THE BENEFICE & BEYOND
The autumn is upon us and it is time to look forward to Christmas. We have been looking to increase the membership, which I know for some making the full commitment would find it too much. Michelle and myself have been chatting and thought it would be a wonderful to ask people if they would come and expand the choir for major festivals. Christmas throws up a big challenge with four major services-
ADVENT CAROL SERVICE -- SUNDAY 1ST DECEMBER
TOWN CAROL SERVICE--SUNDAY 15TH DECEMBER
MIDNIGHT MASS--TUESDAY 24TH DECEMBER
CHRISTMAS DAY-- WEDNESDAY 25TH DECEMBER
You may not be able to commit to all four, but don`t worry. I know there are singers out there, so please come and join us. Practices for these will be on
Fridays Nov. 22nd & 29th Dec.6th,13th, & 20th. All at 8pm for about an hour.
Love to hear from you.
