St George’s choir meets at 9.15 a.m. in the church hall on Sunday mornings to run through the hymns and learn a piece for the service at 10.30 a.m.
Our music is taken from the Anglican repertoire; generally we sing an anthem, and sometimes we sing a psalm to Anglican chant, or some Gregorian chant.
The choir occasionally sings at other St George’s services, e.g. at the evening service in the Marienkirche, the annual carol service at St George’s, or the midnight Christmas service.
At present the choir consists of around a dozen members, and we have room for more singers in all voice parts. All ages are welcome. There is no formal audition, but an ability to read music or to pick it up by ear very quickly is useful, since we only have one (very intensive) hour before church each Sunday to learn hymns, any descants and the anthem - and also to have a look ahead to the following Sunday’s music.
The choir is directed by Andrew Sims. If you would like to join the choir, please speak to Andrew after the morning service or send him an email.
