Choir Report Church AGM 2016
It has been another busy year. The choir has continued to be
involved in a wide variety of services, including requests, as in previous
years, to sing at both funerals and weddings. I am again most grateful for
everyone’s loyalty and continued support particularly when family and other
commitments have to come into play at key times during the year.
The purchase of a book of Taize songs has enriched the
repertoire for the Eucharist with choir members enjoying the introduction of
new material especially for use as ‘Introits’ at the start of services.
It was pleasing to have an augmented choir for Jane’s
induction including singers from the other churches: it proved extremely
successful and is something which might be attempted for some future ‘benefice’
events. The Elham choir however lost a valued member following the death of Mrs
Pamela Speedy in August 2015.
