The East Knoyle Choir

A few weeks ago Louise Brown started writing some music inspired by the difficult times we find ourselves in. Fellow Green resident and poet Elaine Cadogan was asked if she would like to put words to the music. The result is this song.

"Now Are The Days"

As you will know, charities are struggling for funds at this time. The East Knoyle Choir and Louise have been raising funds through concerts and events for Jessie’s Fund for some time now, but of course all events have been cancelled. It would be wonderful if you would like to donate something and you can do so via the link below

We hope you enjoy the song and please feel free to forward. For a copy of the lyrics just click on the link below

Now Are The Days Lyrics (PDF)

Our village choir was formed to provide the opportunity for those who enjoy singing to get together and have fun. We sing a variety of styles including folk, pop, jazz, world music and songs from the musicals. Rehearsals take place on Friday evening in the village hall. In normal times the doors open at 19:00, and at 19.30 we warm up our voices and sing our hearts out until 20:30. We hope to be able to resume this very soon.

There are no auditions, no requirement to read music, no joining fee. We only ask for a £1 donation each week to cover our expenses. Individually we may not be fabulous singers, but we find plenty to laugh about and together make a joyful sound. This is an informal choir, so you don’t have to commit to being there every week. You just come when you can. Everyone of any age is welcome. We would love to see you. Come and join us.

Choirmaster - Louise Brown.

Secretary - Rachel Naish 832335.
