Thorney Abbey Choir

Choral music has been at the heart of the music at Thorney Abbey for many years. The current abbey choir consists of five sopranos, two altos, two tenors and four basses and practice weekly on Thursday evenings in the abbey at 7.30pm until 8.30pm, and on Sunday mornings at 10.15am before the service at 11.00am.

The choir leads the abbey congregation in the singing of the hymns and sung Eucharist, as well as singing psalms during Morning Prayer. Each week the choir sings a communion anthem from a large musical repertoire which ranges from accompanied choral pieces to unaccompanied SATB works. Music is sung in English, Latin and German.

 

In May of each year the choir joins over 300 other singers in Ely cathedral for the Diocesan Choral Festival. Every two years they sing with other choirs at King’s College Chapel, Cambridge.
