Role: Choir Director

Preamble:
Worship at St Alban's is very traditional Anglican with the clergy, servers, assistants, and choir in robes. The choir plays a big part in the sung liturgy. We follow the second order in the 1995 Prayer Book for Australia with the choir singing the Kyrie, Gloria, Sanctus & Benedictus, and Agnus Dei. We sing a setting called the Riddlesdown service. We also chant the psalm, sing a gospel acclamation, the Sursum Corda, an anthem during communion and the four hymns with the congregation. The choir has a complement of volunteer amateur singers all of whom read music.

The Choir attends Choral Eucharist at 10am on the first, third and fifth Sundays, also a Common Prayerbook Evensong on the fourth Sunday of the month. 

The choir rehearses on Wednesday evenings at 7.45 pm.

• Direct and conduct choir for Services

Expectations:
• Mature and deepening Christian faith
• An understanding of SATB choral singing.
• An appreciation of traditional Choral Anglican Worship.
• Participation in wider church life
• Membership of Small Group/Life Group

Personal Characteristics:
• Ability to feel comfortable in front of a choir varying in number between 10 and 18 (approx) and organist accompanist.
