Rehearsal Time: Every Thursday 7-8:15pm
Our chancel choir has been the main senior choir at St. Peter’s for many years. Our mission is to amplify Sunday’s message by singing anthems largely derived from familiar hymn tunes and historic music. Will sing regularly at the 10am services. Requirement to join: none; all are welcome!
Early Music Singers
Rehearsal Time: Every Tuesday from 7-8:15pm
We are a newly formed group of about eight individuals who sing choral music from the Renaissance and Baroque eras, though our primary focus is Tudor music. We will sing about once a month or during festivals. Requirements: moderate sight reading skills; interest in studying historic music.
Current Repertoire: Gibbons “This is the Record of John,” Tallis, “Purge Me, O Lord,” Taverner, “In Trouble and Adversity” (contrafactum from an In nomine from an earlier mass), Tallis “Verily, Verily,” Tallis, “If You Love Me,” and Purcell, “Thou Knowest Lord the Secrets of our Hearts.”
Rehearsal Time: Tuesdays from 8:15-9pm
This is our bell choir, but reinvented. We wear leather jackets and denim and play bells. Requirements: Basic sight reading skill or interest to learn; leather/denim jacket.
Our children’s choir meets seasonally. All children are welcome to join. Information will be available in the newsletter and Sunday’s announcements when this will start up again.
