To maintain the musical tradition for which we are well known, we urgently need more singers.

Our vast repertoire of Viennese Masses is maintained through a single rehearsal of just over half-an-hour before our Sunday morning High Mass. 

Singers must be capable sight-readers, able to take copies of the music away and do thorough homework in preparation for the rehearsal.

A good quality voice with the ability to sing with absolute confidence to fill the church with glorious sound is essential.

 the enquiry form.
