I apologise for the lateness of this reminder, but we were waiting to hear the latest advice and guidance from the government before finalising arrangements for restarting  rehearsals.

It does seem an age since we last met and hopefully you will be able to join our rehearsals commencing tomorrow, Thursday 6th January, at the usual time of 7.15. 

As a committee we are very keen to ensure that we provide as safe an environment as possible for everybody;  for this reason, we have decided to continue rehearsals in the church where we can best ensure appropriate social distancing and good ventilation.
  • We do appreciate it can be cold and so would remind members to dress appropriately.
  • As last term, we will provide hand sanitiser and ask members to wear masks.
  • We understand it is not always possible to get hold of Lateral Flow Tests, but we would encourage people to take a lateral Flow Test before a rehearsal:  this will help identify anybody who may have Covid but not have symptoms.
  • As before, we would ask members not to attend rehearsals if they have any symptoms or are feeling unwell.

We do understand that it is a personal choice when people decide to return to rehearsals.

Rehearsal - 6th January: please bring  your copy of Faure’s Requiem to rehearsal.   (Concert date -  7th May 2022).
We have 20 copies of Faure’s Requiem for hire at a refundable cost of £5.


Please return any Christmas Concert music as we need to return it all to the library.
Carols for choirs 1 and 2,
Vivaldi’s Gloria
Any sheet music.

Please would you check your music as we are still short of copies of  Rutter’s Requiem and Durufle’s Requiem.

Looking forward to singing with you all in 2022,
