The Gentlemen of the Abbey Choir
The Gentlemen of the Abbey Choir are made up of singers based in and around Sherborne, together with three choral scholars who sing in the choir for a year, usually between leaving school and going to university..
At present the 'back row' extends to three altos, four tenors and six basses, but we are always looking to increase our numbers.
The commitment is one practice, held on Fridays evenings at 7.30 - 8.45pm, and two services on Sunday - 9.30am Sung Eucharist and 5.00pm (6.30pm) Choral Evensong. In addition there are occasional weddings and other services coinciding with the major events during the church year: Christmas, Lent and Easter.
Anyone interested in becoming a member of the Abbey Choir should, in the first instance, contact the Director of Music. Prospective members are encouraged to attend a number of rehearsals to discover more.
