Music at St. George’s
We are always ready to welcome anyone who is interested to try being a member with us. If you can read music that would be wonderful, but we can teach people by ear to sing parts. The main thing is to have a real desire to sing and we can work with that! We strongly value our ability to lead and inspire through four-part anthems; this is often without organ accompaniment, as our organist is also our leading bass. We value the enjoyment singing together brings as well as friendly interaction between members.
If you are interested in joining why not come along on Thursday night before practice starts at 6:30pm.
The organ is an example of a Dalladay instrument, built in Hastings for a large private home. It is interesting that the pedals have a device to make it sound like the pedals are being played when they are not, but the facility is so ineffective, it is never used by the current organist.
The registrations are:
Open Diapason 8ft
Viol di Gamba 8ft
Leiblich Gedackt 8ft
Usual couplers and a ‘trigger’ swell pedal.
