Horfield Church Choir
Horfield has always enjoyed a rich and varied tradition of music. The choir presently consists of sixteen regular members - eleven adults and five junior singers; but there are spaces in the stalls for many more and we are always happy to welcome new members! More sopranos, altos and basses are especially needed at the present time, and we would also like to increase the number of juniors to around twelve.
Rehearsals take place at the church on Thursday evenings: juniors from 7.15 until 8.00 p.m. and adults from 8.00 until 9.00 p.m.
The entire choir attends Parish Mass at 10.00 a.m. on Sunday mornings, but evening services (at 6.00 p.m.) are currently sung by the adults only, though we hope that they will be joined in due course by the juniors. On the first Sunday of the month, there is a full choral evensong, with introit, anthem, sung responses and canticles. Special services are also sung to celebrate Advent, Christmas and Lent.
