St Mary’s Kidlington has a proficient mixed adult choir with a broad and varied repertoire ranging from 16th century motets to contemporary works.
In normal times, the choir rehearses twice monthly, from 7.00pm-8.30pm on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month (followed by a glass of wine), and leads the worship at the Sunday morning services on 1st, 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month, at termly choral evensongs, and at special services at Christmas and Easter, alongside our children’s choir, St Mary’s Choristers.
Over the past few years we have sung in a number of wonderful places including Romsey Abbey (Hampshire), Dorchester Abbey, and the chapels of Exeter College and Worcester College, Oxford.
During lockdown 2020 the adult choir produced a virtual recording of the Ascensiontide anthem “Above all praise and all majesty” by Felix Mendelssohn. You can listen to the recording below:
