Music

 

Music holds a place at the heart of our worship and Christ Church is justifiably proud of its high-quality music program. The program is run by Director of Music David Baskeyfield. David is grounded in the Anglican cathedral tradition and is an internationally renowned organ performer.

 

The core of the music program is the Christ Church Choir, an ensemble some 30-strong, comprising volunteers assisted by eight professional section leaders. The choir’s repertoire spans some five hundred years of music, from the Tudor composers such as Tallis, Byrd and Gibbons, through Stanford, Parry and Howells, to contemporary composers. The choir is a friendly and welcoming group that rehearses Wednesday evenings, 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm. Newcomers are always very welcome!
