The Marchmont St Giles’ Church Choir

At present, music at Marchmont St Giles’ is largely the preserve of the Church choir and Organist, whose function is to embellish the singing during the service on Sunday mornings and at Christmas etc.  Although the choir is currently quite small, averaging 10 to 12 singers on any given Sunday, it is remarkably proficient, and accomplished relative to its numbers; and comprises the full range of sopranos, altos, tenors and basses.

Generally each week, the choir provides an anthem

Weekly rehearsals are held on Sunday mornings at 9.15 am for an hour (sometimes, when necessary a little earlier and longer).  After a 15 minute coffee break, the service follows at 10.30 am for roughly an hour.  If you think you might be interested in joining the church choir, as a regular, frequent or even just occasional member , please get in touch with Robert Parsons – either directly by telephone on 0131 557 1257 or 07766 491402; or by email to or by leaving a note or message at the church office (0131 447 4359).
