Choir

Singers rehearse on Thursday 8 to10pm

Choir Director: Phillip Linquist

Organist: Peter Hamilton

Organ Scholar: Katie Choi

The choir supports and enhances regular worship on each Sunday at the traditional 9am morning service . We also sing a traditional Evensong four times each year; we contribute to funerals, memorial services and weddings when required.


We welcome anyone who would like to join us. There are no auditions; we ask only for a love of sacred music and a duty of commitment. Contact the Director Phillip if you would like to sing with us: phillip@linquist.net.au


Repertoire

We sing sacred music covering many genres; from the middle ages to the present day. Our organist, Peter Hamilton, is also a composer and regularly writes new pieces for us.


History

The choir has been in continual operation in the parish since 1914.


We sang services in Winchester Cathedral for a week in August 2001 to celebrate the Pymble parish’s centenary and have returned to England and Ireland regularly since then to sing services in five more cathedrals during their long summer holidays.


The choir has been a member of the Royal School of Church Music NSW Branch since its inception in 1955.
