Holy Trinity choir

The choir of Holy Trinity Church

The organ and choir at Holy Trinity

The organ is a three manual instrument which was originally built in the late 19th century by Willam Hill.  It was rebuilt in 1926 by Rushworth and Draper of Liverpool and  apart from some tonal modifications and solid state console additions it remains pretty well the same as it was then, and is still considered to be one of the finest instruments in north Wales.

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.  On 9 May 2009 a special choral evensong was held to celebrate Norman's 20 years at Holy Trinity.  Norman has been awarded the Archbishop of Wales' Award for Church Music.

The choir sings at the 10.30 am service on Sundays.  Anthems sung by the choir at recent services include:

The Souls of the Righteous (Marchant)
I will sing with the Spirit (John Rutter)

Sing to the Lord of the Harvest (Loenard Blake)

Organ music at recent services has included:

Prelude in B minor - "The Great" (J.S. Bach)
Tuba Tune (C.F. Lang)

Prelude in D minor  (Stanford)

On Saturday 9 April seven members of the choir received the Archbishop of Wales' Certificate of Merit in Church Music from the Archbishop of Wales at a special service at Holy Trinity.  Each of these choristers received the Certificate of Merit for more than 25 years' service to church music.  Please see Special Events for more details.
