Music

Music adds much to worship and can be a real aid to faith. It plays an important part in the 11 o'clock services and Evensong at All Saints'. Here, there are opportunities for everyone to join in singing hymns and other parts of the services, the words all chosen to support the theme and structure of the service in question. We aim to have music that supports the words we sing ranging from loud and brash to quiet and contemplative with lots else in between but hopefully never dull and boring.

Music for the congregation to sing covers a wide range, hymns from the traditional to modern worship songs, chant from medieval plainchant to present day Taizé. While most of what we sing is familiar to many in the congregation and straightforward for newcomers to pick up, we don't hesitate to introduce new music when appropriate. We are always happy to receive feedback and requests.

Instrumental music before, during and after the services and to accompany singing is generally from one of our two organs. We are presently looking into the possibility of forming an instrumental group to provide an alternative at the Family Service. Watch this space!

More importantly, if you might be interested in helping us make music at All Saints' by joining such a group or the choir, or simply by telling us what you think, do please get in touch.
