St Matthias Singers 

The Saint Matthias singers is the voluntary Evensong choir at St Cuthbert’s Church, run by the Director of Music. The choir sings Choral Evensong one Sunday a month at 6.00pm, with a rehearsal on the day at 4.30pm. There is no commitment expectation, and singers simply sign up for each service each time round. A list of the dates and repertoire is published below. The choir is non-auditioned but sight-reading and a knowledge of psalm pointing is essential. Membership suits those who have a background of choral singing, are familiar with Choral Evensong and cannot commit to a weekly choir. If you would like to join the choir, please email the Director of Music, Quintin Beer quintin.beer@saintcuthbert.org
