Choir (11am Mass)

The Choir is a group of singers and musicians from St Aidan’s parish.
Our aim is to lead the congregation and help them play a full part in the hymns that form part of the Liturgy.
The Choir are present at the Sunday 11am Mass and other special services throughout the year.
We welcome new members with an interest in the hymns sung during our services.
The folk choir was formed in 1967 by Jane Rees, a curate with a guitar, who wanted to introduce a new type of music to the parish. The sound and goodwill feeling of the choir was popular and became the nucleus of what became the Sunday Family Folk Mass. Members were encouraged to contribute their own compositions and to pick up instruments that they thought forgotten from their youth. Stephen Church and Dave Carroll developed the style and the music which is still the heartbeat of the choir today.
