Choir

Christ Church choir is a thriving mixed group with ages ranging from 6 to 76(ish). There are no auditions for the choir, anyone is welcome to come along and join in, but we still pride ouselves on the standard of music making we achieve. The choir has a large and constantly expanding repertoire and above all we all really enjoy our singing.

On Easter Sunday 2012, the Christ Church choir took part in the BBC's "People's Passion" project, a nationwide premiere of a new anthem and mass setting by Michael Symmons Roberts and Sasha Johnson Manning. This was covered by by various local media outlets, including local television and radio, as you can see and hear in the clips below:
