Choir

St David’s Church Choir is a lively and friendly mixed-age group who sing regularly at the 9.30am Sunday service throughout the year, and on other occasions such as carol services and weddings.

There are no auditions and our aim is to sing what we can sing, and sing it well.  Our repertoire consists mainly of short anthems, songs from Taizé, Iona and the world church, together with material specially written or arranged for the choir.  From time to time we are joined by members of St Michael’s Church choir and other guests for special occasions.

Particular “high spots” during the past eighteen months have included:

  • Palm Sunday and Easter 2017
  • Pentecost and Trinity Sunday 2017
  • Advent Sunday – 29th November 2017
  • Carol and midnight services – Christmas 2017
  • Installation of Nigel Guthrie – January 2018
  • Candlemas 2018
  • “Three choirs” concert – March 2018
  • Palm Sunday and Easter 2018
  • Hospiscare fundraising concert – June 2018
  • Taizé evening worship – July 2018
  • Remembrance 2018
  • Christmas 2018

We are always glad to welcome new members.  Please contact Nigel Walsh, Director of Music, on 01392 273237 or choir@stdavidschurchexeter.org.uk for further details … or just come along on a Sunday and buttonhole Nigel or any member of the choir.
