All Saints has a four-part robed choir comprising of adults, young people, boys and girls who sing at the main Services each week. It is affiliated to the Royal School of Church Music (RSCM). Choristers are trained using this scheme and a large proportion have gained Deans’ and Bishops’ Awards at Guildford Cathedral.
The PCC encourages this choral tradition and generously fund the work of the choir. Organ Scholarships are also available for promising musicians.
This lovely traditional service, using the Book of Common Prayer, is held on the 3rd Sunday of each month except August, December and January, when Carol Services – with choir highlights – take over. Now we look forward to November’s Choral Evensong on 17th November at 6.30pm. This month the choir will be singing: Introit – ‘Hail, glorious spirits, heirs of light’ (Tye); Canticles – Noble in B minor; Responses by Smith; Anthem – ‘How lovely are the messengers’ (Mendelssohn).
It is becoming a tradition to have a special piece of music on a Sunday in Lent and in 2019 on Palm Sunday (14th April) at 6.30pm the choir sang Faure’s Requiem.
