Our activities

Choir practice:

Choir practice is currently taking place every other week before the 11am Sunday Mass at HolyAngels. We gather in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere for about half an hour, during which we learn new hymns as well as practising with our current repertoire.

Choir practice calendar for the forthcoming weeks:

Sunday 3rd August, from 10.15 to 10.45.

Sunday 17th August, from 10.15 to 10.45.

Sunday 31st August, from 10.15 to 10.45


We are preparing for our community:

- Laudato Si, O mi Signore (for St. Frances and Harvest Sunday)

- Crist ain siog/The seed is Christ ( n. 737 in our hymn books, for Harvest Sunday)

- This is the day, by M. Joncas (n. 257 in our hymn books)

- Salve Regina, Gregorian melody (n. 367 in our hymn book)

- Missa De Angelis (n.497 to 509 in our hymn books);

As we are an enthusiastic and committed group, we would like to experiment and innovate by

introducing more challenging projects, such as:

- introducing a repertoire for the Junior Chorus.

-singing in descant for four voices;

Our Projects:
