The Boys’ Choir, Girls’ Choir, Men’s Choir and Choristers’ Mums’ Choir between them sing for the morning service (11am) each Sunday and two Sunday evening (6.30pm) services a month during term-time. Singing between three and six anthems on any Sunday (plus responses, canticles, psalms and communion settings) the repertoire of the choirs is extensive and varied. Music at Holy Trinity is maintained to a high and constant standard.
The Boys and Men work together and as two separate choirs. The Girls’ Choir and the Choristers’ Mums’ Choir work independently from one another and from the boys and men for most of the time. The choirs combine for occasional special services. Holy Trinity is known for its trilogy of carol services – Advent, Christmas, Epiphany – with the unique tradition of a Carol Service on Christmas Day (initiated in 1955).
Aside from Sunday commitments, the choirs also sing for weddings and memorial services throughout the year.
Recordings, radio and television appearances and visits to cathedrals and neighbouring churches have been a feature of the music at Holy Trinity throughout Sara Wood’s time as Director and Organist. In recent times, online musical offerings have also become a staple fixture of the choirs’ output.
