Choral Music at Saint Anne’s Kew

The choir at Saint Anne’s, Kew, is a community of many talents. Architects, art historians, doctors, solicitors, students, musical enthusiasts all, share their gifts and express their commitment by meeting to rehearse on Friday evening each week in preparation for singing at the 10.00 a.m. Mass on Sunday. In addition to leading the congregational worship, the choir performs a wide range of repertoire from plainsong and renaissance polyphony to new music composed specially for the ensemble. We welcome new members and would be happy to hear from anyone with musical ambition and a good sense of humour. Please contact Julian Kelly, director of music, at or by visiting in person after 10.00 a.m. Mass on Sunday.

We now have a Google Site – St Anne’s Sunday Teas – and on it are several documents which I hope you will find helpful. There are a few changes and some suggestions; you are invited to make known your own comments, concerns and suggestions. In order to access the site I need you to give me permission to include you on the list. This means you need to email me. The site is currently just for viewing, so any changes i.e. the rota, comments and suggestions have to come via myself. Barbara
