The weekly anthems, motets and service settings, together with the music sung at special services, festivals and recitals, results in the choir performing a substantial amount of music each year. The repertoire covers a wide range of composers from all periods including Tallis, Byrd, Gibbons, Purcell, Bach, Handel, Mozart, Schubert, Mendelssohn, Wesley, Bruckner, Vaughan Williams, Howells and Britten.
The choir knows and enjoys singing music in different styles and of different periods, and experiences real satisfaction when a piece has been sung well.
All Saints’ Parish Church Choir is a large and active choir with a fine record of achievements, and is well known in the Diocese and beyond.
Throughout the year the choir leads the regular sung services of Sung Eucharist and Choral Evensong, together with the major feast days and festivals of the church’s year. We have taken part in many RSCM events both at York Minster and Durham Cathedral together with many churches throughout the North.
