Our MU Choir is led by Lesley Wright. This is an open-access unauditioned choir and ability to read music while useful isn’t essential.
"It was lovely to be asked as a choir to lead some music at the Eucharist in the Cathedral on 7 December marking 16 Days of Activism against Gender Violence. Sadly some of those who had hoped to sing weren’t available but five of us, Barbara Packer, Dorothy Frankland, Jenny Germain and Marion Mullen joined me; we rehearsed in St Francis Heaton, as our usual rehearsal space in St Nicholas Gosforth wasn’t free, and I was very relieved on the day when the five of us assembled in the Cathedral before Midday Prayers. We sang the hymn A Touching Place and three chants, all from the Iona Community. I hope those to whom the hymn was new were as moved by its words as I am every time I sing it."
