The choir, which is mixed, is extremely capable and, although only moderate in numbers, can perform anthems and services of medium difficulty very well including music from Tallis to the modern day composers in up to six parts. New members are always welcomed but do have to be able to read music to a fairly high standard as the choir only rehearses on Sunday mornings from 9.30am to 10.15 am, except on very few occasions when special occasions demand.
Norman Rimmer is the organist and choirmaster. He has been at Holy Trinity since 1989 and was previously organist at Waltham Abbey in Essex for 20 years. Norman has been awarded the Archbishop of Wales’ Award for Church Music and a number of members of the choir have received the Archbishop of Wales’ Certificate of Merit in Church Music for more than 25 years’ service to church music.
Congratulations to Norman Rimmer on the award of the BEM for services to music in the 2016 New Year’s Honours.
