St. Matthias Choir has 60% more choristers than we did last year.
Something that has changed at St. Matthias has been our ability to attract choristers. Last year to start the season we had 17 very dedicated singers. This year we have 26 and the number keeps climbing. I have yet another audition this Sunday. If we grow one more season at this rate we will run out of space in the choir stalls.
Yes there is a special formula. No, I won’t share it with you. Instead I’ll enjoy saying this:
For the first time since I became the D of Music here nearly 10 years ago I’ve programmed I Was Glad by Parry. There really is nothing more Anglican out there.
We are all very excited about this, the sound in the church is so full and round, it’s going to be a lovely and exciting season full of fantastic music. We have the Duruflé Requiem coming up on November 1st.
This is your invitation to come and share this year’s music with us. You can sing, or you can listen, but don’t miss this chance to be part of something truly special.
