Music is a vibrant part of St. Aidan’s life and christian worship. Our choir leads the St. Aidan’s community in song at our Sunday services. Our in-house band, the St. Aidan's Regrets, continues to enhance our musical repertoire, singing occasionally with the Senior Parish Choir.
We sing a wide variety of music, from 17th century motets to 20th century folk music. Keeping to our Anglican roots, we sing psalms in both Anglican Chant and Plainsong, and a growing diversity hymnody, both ancient and modern.
We are currently recruiting members into the choir for all voice parts. If you are interested in joining the choir, please contact our Music Ministry Coordinator, Michael via email.
The Choir of St. Aidan's is currently recruiting new singers to all voice parts, especially Soprano and Alto. Our Choir leads us in song on Sunday mornings, and at special afternoon services through the year, including our Service of Remembrance, Advent Lessons & Carols, as well as for Holy Week and Easter. This is a non-auditioned group, and we warmly welcome new members on a regular basis.
If this is of interest to you, please contact Michael, our Music Ministry Coordinator.
St. Aidan’s very own band, the "St. Aidan's Regrets" adds another creative element to our services on Sunday with their bluegrass, folk, gospel, and country music. Playing once a month at our 10:30am service and at special events, this committed group of musicians brings a lot of variety to the life of our parish. With our classic Anglican choral music and with the band we are blessed with a diversity of songs that enhance our worship experience.
We're currently welcoming new band members. If you play an instrument and would like to join the group, please contact Michael.
Plainsong Psalter: You'll notice that the Psalms on Sundays are taken from The Psalter of The Book of Alternative Services Emended for Contemporary Liturgical Use. This psalter is a revised form of the BAS Psalter, as put forward at the 2016 General Synod. To date, no musical publications have been created which utilize this revised text. Over the course of the 2023-2024 school year, Michael is compiling a new Plainsong Psalter which will point the text, and corresponding refrains for the Liturgical Year. As an additional resource, this Psalter will aim to include fauxbourdon settings of the psalms as well as practical examples for accompaniment.
