“After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music”

Aldous Huxley
The Dorset Church music program is a strongly supported and integral part of worship.  We are a singing congregation and our worship services are unique and diverse. Artistic expression of varied genres is always welcome here and our Church offers a strong link with the wider community.  Our spirited, inter-generational SATB choir is active from September through mid June. We fully participate in singing anthem and offertory every Sunday. Our rehearsal times are Thursday nights from 7-8 and Sunday mornings from 9-10. Sometimes the women’s or men’s choirs sing for gathering music and at other times soloists or small ensembles participate. The music that we sing ranges from classical through contemporary and all are invited to join us.  On occasion our choir sings in concert or gathers together to produce a fundraiser. Often during the Christmas season,
the choir can be heard singing carols at one of Manchester’s historical sites.
