Choir and Singing Group
Music at High Cross services is varied and supported by both a Choir and Singing Group.
The Choir maintains the tradition of 4-part harmony singing of the more traditional hymns and anthems. New choir members are always welcome, especially tenors and basses.
The Singing Group introduces and leads the singing of more modern lively worship songs drawn from Songs of Fellowship and other sources, and on regular occasions contributes additional contemporary items within services. It combines a team of young and older singers with an increasing and enthusiastic number of young instrumentalists forming a band who all mix in a lovely family team. We are currently seeking and will welcome new members of all ages both as singers and players.
On special festival occasions the Singing Group combines with the Choir for joint productions. From time to time the Choir and/or Singing Group will lead a complete service, often with the benefit of additional invited singers and accompanists.
There is a well-stocked music cupboard and we are open to music and liturgies drawn from a wide background. Music is seen as an activity with few barriers and as a way of drawing people into the Church - as well as for the enrichment of the worship of the church.
