SHERWOOD GREENLAW CHURCH
The Church choir provides the music for the services, mainly morning services on a Sunday. We have a wide ranging repertoire from the up-to-date to church music from the 16th century. From time to time, we organise special events – for instance, at Christmas. We particularly enjoy choral harmony, and we have four parts – soprano, contralto, tenor and bass.. The choir at present has 16 active members. We are very ably led by our organist and choirmaster, Mr Donald Kennedy. In addition to our musical lives, we also meet socially.
Our mission is to celebrate our faith and enhance the worship of the Church through music and song.
The choir meets on a Thursday evening in the minor hall

THE CHURCH CHOIR
Immortal, impossible, God only knows
How tenors and basses, sopranos, altos
At service on Sunday are rarely the same
As those, who on Thursday, to choir practice came
Unready, unable to sight-read the notes
Not counting, nor blending they tighten their throats
The descant so piercing is soaring above
The melody only a mother could love
They have a Director but no one knows why
No one in the choir deigns to turn him an eye
It’s clear by his waving he wants them to look
But each of them stands with their nose in a book
Despite the offences, the music rings out
The folks in the pews are enraptured no doubt
Their faces are blissful, their thoughts are so deep
But it is no wonder, for they are asleep.
