It seems like a very long time since Sunday 15th March. That was the last time the Choir sang for a Sunday service at St. George’s.
We finished singing for Evensong that evening not knowing we wouldn’t sing together in Church again for a very long time.
Now that the government guidance has changed I’m pleased that members of the choir will be able to sing again for the first time on Sunday 6th September at the 10:15am Service.
Given the nature of the guidance I’m afraid it’ll only be the choir allowed to sing. Congregational singing is still a little way off resuming again, however rest assured, we’ll do our best to sing on your behalf. We’ve decided not to include any hymns during the morning service for the foreseeable future. I realise how tempting it would be to join in and sing along to all of our favourite hymns. That time will come and I look forward to the day we can sing together again as a Church community.
The choir won’t be back to full strength for quite a while yet, however I’m incredibly grateful to those who have said they’ll return in the short term to provide music for our services.
These are difficult times for us all, but hopefully the music offered on your behalf will benefit us all in some way until such a time as we can all sing together again.
