Music

We are proud of our voluntary choir, which sings at our Shabbat morning service once a month, at High Holy Days and some festivals.

The choir enhances services with a variety of settings for our liturgy, many arranged by our own conductors. Many members of the choir are accomplished vocalists and musicians; nevertheless the emphasis is on participation of members of the choir and of the general congregation.

During the pandemic lockdown members of the choir recorded some of the songs for the Shabbat service. 

Mah Tovu

Essa Einai

Nishmat Kol Chai

Adon Olam

Beyond our regular services, the choir participates in some local community or interfaith events, and some members of the choir are also available (at a reasonable fee) to form a quartet for weddings. We would like the choir to go from strength to strength, and welcome new members. If you would like to take a more active part in the services and get a musical buzz, and think you can sing, we would love you to give our choir a try. The prayers with the music are written out in English phonetics; so Hebrew reading is not essential.

Under normal circumstances, rehearsals are on selected Saturdays at 9.30 am before a service, plus 2-3 evenings at the time of the high holy days, so they are not too onerous.

 For more information or if you want to take part, please contact Alan Byers or the office.

 

Friday night services are frequently enhanced by guitar accompaniment and on the third Friday of the month (and for the occasional Shabbat morning service) with our “Fretz” guitarists.

During the pandemic lockdown the Fretz guitarists recorded 

Shabbat Ha-malkah

Mizmor Shir L'Yom Ha-shabbat
