St John’s has had a robed choir since its earliest days, and the current choir sings two services every Sunday for most of the year.
At the morning High Mass the choir sing the psalm, parts of a mass setting, and an anthem, and support the congregation in singing the hymns, the Kyrie, and the Gloria. At Choral Evensong they sing the psalms, the canticles, and an anthem, and support the congregation in the responses and the hymns. Their repertoire includes music from across the whole range of Western liturgical music, from medieval plainchant to works by contemporary composers.
St John’s has also recently started a Junior Choir for children aged from 7 to 11 years old. They currently sing once a month at the Sunday High Mass: their next appearances are 12th May and 9th June, when they will join with the adult choir in singing the anthem.
If you are interested in joining the choir, or if your child is interested in joining the Junior Choir, please contact the Director of Music, Max Smith (firstname.lastname@example.org).
