East London Evensong Choir is a semi-professional reading choir which convenes to rehearse and sing Choral Evensong at Christ Church once every two months. Our services will typically involve around sixteen singers, split into Dec and Can, and include a full setting of the Canticles and responses, an antiphonal psalm, an ambitious anthem, and either an introit or recessional. Services are accompanied by a guest organist. As well as exploring the gems of the English Choral Tradition, our repertoire includes a broad range of European and contemporary sacred music – and even the odd secular work.
This is a selective choir, with many professional singers and musicians among its membership, and our rehearsals assume very confident music-reading ability. For more information or to discuss admission, please email Jonathan Pease.
