Choirs using the site

Many different kinds of choirs use these rehearsal files. I thought it would be useful to provide a list of links to their websites. This would give all users the opportunity to see what other choirs from different parts of the world are performing.

If you want to be added to this list, use the "Contact Me" link on the left towards the bottom to send me all the information you want me to add.

The Anglican Chorale of Ottawa: ACO is an unusual Canadian Church choir in that we have no church building to call our own, and we have actually sung more services in the UK than in Canada. There are about 30 members of the choir, ranging in age from 18 to 80. Since 1994, We have been travelling to the UK every other year as visiting choir at various cathedrals (Canterbury, Ely, Winchester, Durham, Wells, Gloucester, Lincoln, Edinburgh, Dublin, Belfast, and this summer will visit Worcester).
St Matthew’s Anglican Church, in addition,  has a very active music program with two choirs (Men and Boys and Women and Girls). Choral Eucharist is sung every sunday and Evensong is sung twice a month. The choirs combine for some services and concerts.

Anglican/Episcopal Church of Christ the King: we are a choir regularly providing music for the only Anglican church in Frankfurt am Main.
