Area Chamber Choir at St Albans Abbey, March 2010

Our local Area Chamber Choir sang their first Evensong of the year in St Albans Abbey on Saturday 6th March. This being Lent, the music chosen was appropriate for the season. The anthem was Stanford’s O for a closer walk with God and the canticles were Weelkes’ Short Service. Ayleward Responses, Psalms 64 and 67 along with the hymn Be thou my guardian and my guide completed the service. Roger Carter was in fine form seated up in the organ loft and once again the service was directed by our Area Chairman, Christopher Muhley.

Area Chamber Choir

The Area Chamber Choir was formed two years ago with the intention of singing services in our Cathedral and in other churches within the Diocese. We have a nucleus of singers who attend most events, and there are others who come to what they can. Our aim is to limit ourselves to about 30 singers on any one occasion. If you think you would like to become involved, or would like to know more, please contact Helen Carter our Chamber Choir Secretary. This can be done through the Contact Us page on this website.

Our next event is Evensong in All Saints’, Leighton Buzzard on Sunday 23rd May 2010.
