A few years ago the Hallam Diocesan Choir was formed. The Choir rehearsed a few times a year to prepare music in order to enhance the Liturgy at major events, notably the Chrism Mass, Padley Sunday and the Installation of a new Bishop.

Recently the Choir, taken from parishes around the Diocese who have a Choir/Music Group, has held monthly practices to increase the repertoire and prepare for other liturgical events, eg Christmas. Music has been chosen from all periods in the history of music, ie Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, Romantic and Modern. The monthly practices usually take place at the Hallam Pastoral Centre on a Saturday morning.

The Choir would welcome new members, especially altos, tenors and basses – even sopranos!
