St. Aidan’s Church was always richly blessed with a large choir.
The membership consisted of male and female and at one time they sang in four part harmony, soprano, alto, tenor and bass. The choir pews were always full to capacity and the choir had a very high standard of music. On many occasions their music was complimented by numerous visitors to the church services. It became a “Robed Choir” in May 1964.
Choir practices took place in the church every Wednesday night.
Although a mixed choir there was always
great fellowship at these practices which were “opened and closed” with prayer.
Down through the years our Church has been blessed with many talented Organists, to name but a few: Mr. Alex Hall, Mr. Mervyn Dunn, Mr. Michael Franklin (who came to us from Londonderry Cathedral and served in the Parish for 19 years). Mr. Adrian Posten (who came to us from St. Patrick’s Ballymena), Mr. Howard McKeown, Miss Amy Boyce,
Mrs Ellie Leckey and presently Daniel Clements, a student at Queen's University Belfast.
Many people have passed through the “Choir Pews” over the years but it has always been the aim of all the Organists / Choir Masters / Choir Mistresses to uphold the high standard of music attained by St. Aidan’s Church Choir through the years.
