Rothley Church has an excellent SATB choir that leads the worship in church for Sunday 9:30am Morning services throughout the year. The choir is not restricted to traditional hymns & anthems and introduces new worship songs to the congregation on a regular basis (see Rothley Choir website music page). The choir also leads the music for our monthly Choral Evensong at 6:00pm on the 2nd Sunday of each month
Choir Practice takes place every Friday evening throughout the year with only a small number of exceptions. They meet at 7.00pm and finish at 8.00pm.
We are always keen to recruit new choristers to our ranks. If you are interested, please contact our Organist and Choir Trainer, Simon Murphy.
The organ is the church’s main instrument and is used within the majority of our services. It was originally installed in 1929 in dedication to the memory of the men of Rothley who died in the Great War (1914-1918). It was built by Hill, Norman and Beard and has two manuals with twenty-two stops which enable a broad range of sounds to be produced. This wonderful pipe organ was fully refurbished in 2005.
We have a Grand Piano near the Memorial Chapel which is used often within our worship as well as an Upright Piano in the Chancel, used for services and choir practices.
The musical resources within the church enables a wide-range of music to be provided for our regular and varied worship styles. Typically, the traditional mix of organ and choir are used for the more formal services that take place through the church’s year.
At our 11.00 am services we have a music group and an opportunity for anyone of a reasonable standard on any instrument to join us.
To discuss playing, please contact Simon Murphy.
