has always been an important feature of life at St Mary's Church,
Wivenhoe. People are always welcome to come, whether or not part of
the regular attendees at Church services. We are always looking for
people to join the choir, either to sing regularly, or just for the
special occasions with St Mary's Singers.
St Mary’s Singers has grown to a group
numbering over 40 regular singers, mainly from Wivenhoe, but with
members also coming from
and around the area. The group has also grown in musical
experience and in 2007 performed the Requiem and a Missa Brevis by
Mozart and also the Gloria by Vivaldi.
the successful summer concert ‘Anniversaries’, St. Mary’s Singers
starts rehearsals again in the Autumn preparing for the music for
Remembrance Concert on Sunday, 8th November 2009. The main work
will be the Missa Brevis in G (KV140) by Mozart with some other
smaller pieces by Handel and Stanford suitable for the occasion.
in St. Mary’s on Thursday 17th September and continue every Thursday
until the event. We would very much welcome singers for all voice
parts who may like to join us for this event. Please do make contact
with any choir member or Graham Wadley.
We welcome any singers for all voice parts
who may like to join us. We would particularly encourage any
tenors and basses who would like to come along. Like most
singing groups these days, men are in great demand for St Mary’s
Singers and are particularly welcome.
