ASS needs you!!!
31st January 2014
 
 


Over the coming weeks we will hold our second Be a Chorister! Day, which will be followed by our annual round of auditions and voice tests to recruit our next generation of boy and girl choristers. For the first time in nearly a decade, we will also be recruiting for our back rows, to widen access to the unique experience of our Choral Scholarships to singers who are not already associated with All Saints (all of our present Choral Scholars are former boy choristers). More information on these three recruiting areas will follow in early March, but right now we are also recruiting members for our voluntary choir, the All Saints’ Singers.

The All Saints’ Singers are a group of adult men and women who lead the singing at our daily 12:30pm Mass when it falls on a “red letter” Saints day. Unlike our other choirs, this ensemble is non-auditioning, and because of the time of the service, it enables principally retired adult men and women to take part in our worshipping life. The majority of the singers are members of other church choirs in and around Northampton, and they are able to bring an anthem to life from first seeing it at 11:30am to performing it one hour later.

On average the choir sings one service a month, but because the dates follow the Church Calendar, they are not always on the same day of the week, and sometimes they are six weeks apart, and other times just a fortnight. There is no minimum commitment for attendance, but most of our singers make most of our services. The services themselves are short, usually lasting 35 to 40 minutes, and many choir members stay on for lunch in the Coffee Shop after the service.

We have a strong core of twelve sopranos and altos, but would like to increase both these voice parts and especially our two tenors and basses.

The choir next meets at All Saints at 11:30am on Ash Wednesday, 5 March, then again on 19 March for the Feast of Saint Joseph, husband of the Blessed Virgin Mary, who is herself commemorated on 25 March (March is our busiest month by far!). The choir is presently not robed, and wear smart clothing for the service. You are more than welcome to simply join us on one of these dates, or please contact our Travis Organ Fellow, Hilary Punnett, on 01604 632845 or organist@allsaintsnorthampton.co.uk for further information. Remember, ASS needs you!!!
