Choir

Our Lady & St Anne’s Choir was formed in 1986 and is a traditional 4-part choir (soprano, alto, tenor, bass), currently numbering 16.

The choir has three main aims: to lead the congregation in their singing which enhances prayerfulness and a deeper spiritual experience; to keep alive the musical traditions of the Church; and to introduce new music into the repertoire of the parish.

They sing at the 10.00am Mass every other Sunday and on all major Feasts and celebrations.  Choir members sing a wide variety of motets as well as a variety of traditional and more contemporary music during Mass.

The choir supports bereaved families by supporting the singing at funerals.

The choir meets every other Tuesday evening to practise in the Church from 8.00pm. Practices usually last about an hour.

If you enjoy singing, the choir is always looking for new voices to swell their numbers.  No auditions are held although a real commitment is required for both practices and the Sunday Masses.

Members of the choir and their partners also meet together socially at least twice a year.

For more information please contact Clare Gough  – goughtowers@btinternet.com  or speak to her or Father Patrick after the relevant 10.00am Sunday Mass.
