Thanks to the generous sponsorship of three local business (High Clandon Estate Vineyard, Edwins Garden Centre, and Clandon Wood Natural Burial Ground), the Clandon Schola Cantorum was formed in 2022 to help broaden and enhance our church’s music.
Under the direction of Prof. Sebastian Forbes, this professional quartet sings once a month on Sundays at our Cathedral style Eucharists. They sing a Mass setting, an anthem or Communion motet, and generally help with the singing of hymns.
In addition to the Cathedral Style Eucharists, from 2023 the Schola will sing every other month at our Choral Evensong on the first Sunday of the month. We are really looking forward to this addition to our churches.
These services are incredibly beautiful, and for those who find worshipping in a Cathedral style uplifting and joyful, the Schola services are a wonderful addition to the worship of our churches.
Together with the Clandons Choir, the Schola Cantorum means that the Clandon Churches have some of the best choral music in the Guildford area.
We would love to welcome you to one of our Schola led services. Click below to find out when the next one is taking place.
