In Ecclesia was founded in 1988 and is a group of singers who meet three or four times a year to sing Choral Evensong at a Cathedral or Abbey Church.
We deputise for the Cathedral or Abbey Church choirs when there are no scheduled Choral Evensong services, or the choir is on holiday.
In Ecclesia during lockdown
As a choir, we are used to coming together throughout the year to meet friends, unite in musical harmony and to sing in wonderful buildings. As with many choirs, this is something we have missed during Covid-19 restrictions, and we look forward to when we will be able to enjoy singing together once more. Until then, please enjoy these motets from our own ‘virtual choir’.
“A church without a choir is like a body without a soul” ..... John Rutter
Unfortunately, due to the ongoing situation and current government guidelines, all our scheduled services for 2021 have been cancelled, with the exception of choral evensong on Monday 3 May 2021 at Wells Cathedral. Any further information regarding this service will be updated as soon as possible.
