St Giles' Choir
St Giles Choir leads about 70 services every year - Choral Eucharist every Sunday morning at 9am, and Choral Evensong (BCP) at 6pm on the first and third Sundays of each month.
They're a traditional robed Anglican SATB choir, with their own music library and a growing repertoire of anthems, some of which have been especially written for them. The choir particularly enjoys singing the music of the sixteenth-century composers such as Byrd, Tallis, Tye which we love to perform a cappella to the glory of God in the magnificent Victorian choir stalls at St Giles.
St Giles Choir is a close-knit group, but they warmly welcome new singers who might like to join - why not come for a Friday night rehearsal to see if you enjoy it? They make a surprisingly loud noise for a choir of just 16 singers but are always keen to recruit more! The Choir of St Giles is free to join - all music is provided, and it’s good fun as well as a great musical training. If you’re interested in joining or just in learning more, please call John & Dizzy Prentice on 0115 984 5535.
