Saint Geoge's choir, lead by organist and choir master Stephen Powell, sings at the weekly 10.00am service. It is a congenial group of about 30 singers, ranging in age from 10 to 75+. We rehearse
on Thursday evenings from 7:30 p.m.to 9:30 p.m. Our repertoire focuses
on the traditional Anglican from the sixteenth century (Byrd, Gibbons,
Tallis) through Purcell, Greene, Wesley, up to the twentieth century
- Stanford, Harris, Britten and the rest. We also sing a great deal
of Canadian music, especially the unaccompanied works of Willan,
Wm France, W.H. Anderson, etc. Our style of psalmody is mainly Anglican
chant and occasionally plainsong, and our congregational hymns come
from the Anglican hymnbook, Common Praise.
