St. Bartholomew’s Church Choir

The Choir at Corsham Church sings at the 10:00 am service every Sunday and on a number of other occasions, such as occasional sung evening services, weddings and funerals. Over the years we have collected a repertoire of over 150 anthems ranging from the 16th century to the present day, both accompanied and unaccompanied, and are always on the lookout for good new material.

If you enjoy singing, or would like to learn, you are most welcome to join us; there is no audition. Choir practice is for an hour on Fridays, starting at 7:00 pm in the Lady Chapel. We currently have three tenors, three basses, four altos and around a dozen sopranos. If you’d like to hear us before deciding, why not attend the 10.00 am service one Sunday?  A list of the anthems we are singing in the near future is given below.

The post of Organist & Choirmaster is shared by husband and wife team, Robin Jackson FRCO and Maureen McAllister FRCO, of 10 The Cleeve, Corsham, SN13 9JG. Tel. (01249) 713809.

At 6pm on Sunday 19 May we are holding a Choral Evensong which will include visiting singers from a Regional Royal School of Church Music event organised by Robin Jackson.  Music will include: The Heavens are telling (HAYDN), Cantate Domino (PITONI) and the STANFORD Magnificat and Nunc Dimitis in C.  Please join us if you can.

Future Anthems:

Please note anthems may change at short notice if insufficient voices are available to sing the scheduled anthem.
