Choir

St David’s Church Choir is a lively and friendly mixed-age group, numbering about sixteen, 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 simple things 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:

  • Carol and midnight services – Christmas 2014
  • Candlemas – February 2015
  • St David’s Day – March 2015
  • Palm Sunday and Easter 2015
  • Pentecost and Trinity Sunday 2015
  • St Francis’s Day – 4th October 2015
  • Advent Sunday – 29th November 2015
  • Baptism and Confirmation – 13th December 2015
  • Carol and midnight services – Christmas 2015
  • Candlemas 2016
  • Palm Sunday and Easter 2016
  • Bishop Sarah visit – May 2016

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.  Do also visit Nigel’s personal websit.
