We are seeking new members for the Choir - all ages, all abilities - all welcome!
St Augustine's Church Choir, Edgbaston seeks new choristers
Our choir is comprised of non-professional musicians. In recent years we have shrunk, but we are now looking to expand to around around 20-25 in number.
We perform many different settings at both the 10.30am and 6.30pm Services.
Choral Evensong - with Benediction and an introit included on Festivals - is sung every week, excepting Low Sunday and the Sunday after Christmas Day, as is the 10.30am Parish Mass. August is taken as the choir holiday.
Psalms are generally sung to Anglican chants with an occasional plainchant with faux-bourdons. The proper plainsong office hymns precede the Magnificat.
On Festivals, Benediction and an Introit are included at Evensong, which is Solemn, with incense. At all Evensongs the Canticles are sung to a setting and there is an anthem.
For further details and to discuss how you might get involved, please contact the Director of Music, Paul Richards, on 0121 454 8985 or e-mail at DoM@staugustines-edgbaston.org.uk
