Music at Trinity
Music plays an important part in our worship and we are fortunate to have a refurbished organ and a talented Director of Music. For our morning services the choir usually sings an anthem from a wide repertoire ranging from the 16th-21st century. The choir is often asked to sing at weddings.
At present we are constrained by government rules and the need to reduce spread of the virus, so our choir is suspended and we cannot enjoy congregational singing in church. We look forward to enjoying singing again one day!
Since Easter 2014 we have adopted a new hymnbook ‘Singing the Faith', which has served to broaden the range of styles of musical worship at Trinity, including more contemporary responsorial and Taizé hymns.
For special occasions the choir is augmented to include people from our CUCS partners and other friends. In recent years the augmented choir has sung Fauré’s Requiem, Haydn’s Nelson Mass, Mozart’s Requiem, Handel's Messiah and Stainer's Crucifixion.
To mark the end of the church centenary in 2008 a fully staged production of the musical 'Spirit' was performed.
In 2011 another musical, written by Trinity members but using the music of Roger Jones, developed the themes of inclusivity and acceptance.
See the choir page for more information.
We have a fine three manual pipe organ which was installed in1922. Originally built in 1912 by Messrs. Harrison and Harrison for a country mansion in Northamptonshire, it was reconstructed for church use and adapted to fit in with the interior woodwork by Messrs. Henry Willis and Sons.
It was rebuilt in 1993 and has been subsequently remodelled to meet current requirements, including the recent addition of the latest technology that includes remote recording and replay facilities via an iPad!
The organ is very much appreciated by the congregation and plays an important role in uplifting the worship of the church.
