Our choir sings on 36 Sunday mornings through the year; but for any of the others we are delighted to invite choirs and other musicians who would like to join their music-making with our liturgy. Choirs visiting St Matthew’s recently have included the Voyageurs Ambassadors of Music from the USA and the Bahamas National Youth Choir, but we are keen to welcome choirs from closer to home also!
We have no minimum or maximum choir requirement and welcome choirs from all musical traditions that share our enthusiasm for song in praise of God. We have no set requirements for repertoire (for example it is not necessary to sing a Psalm at Morning Prayer, or a setting of the Communion liturgy at a Communion service), but we do ask that visiting choirs take a lead in singing the hymns (principally from the New English Hymnal).
We offer a warm welcome, our dignified but relaxed liturgy from the BCP or Common Worship, our beautiful building with a generous acoustic and its fine three-manual Walker organ or well-maintained piano, in our Central London location minutes from Hyde Park.
If you would be interested in singing at a Sunday morning service please contact John Henderson, email@example.com.
