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, all our planned services for 2020 have been cancelled. Our next confirmed date for choral evensong is on Monday 3 May 2021 at Wells Cathedral.
