Music

Photo_7.JPGThe Choir

St. George’s Parish Choir is made up of enthusiastic volunteers who meet on Thursday evenings to rehearse. Their repertoire is comprised of music from the standard church music repertoire and pieces which have been composed over the years by choristers and directors of music. Our Director of Music, Phil Ypres-Smith, is always looking to sign up new singers. If you are interested in joining the choir please contact him via the church website.

The Dragon Consort sings at the 10.30 a.m. service on the fourth Sunday of each month. Their repertoire is mainly drawn from the sixteenth and early twentieth centuries and is usually a cappella. The consort was set up to alleviate the pressure on the regular choir and introduce other repertoire into the musical life of the Church.

The Organ

Since 1838 when the church was first built, there have been a number of iterations of the organ. Our current instrument, a Phoenix digital organ, dates from 2004. For a full history of the organs at St. George's Church, please download the file below, courtesy of Dr. Jim Berrow.
