About the Choir of Romsey Abbey
A comparative rarity nowadays, we are a traditional robed choir of men and boy trebles who sing at services on Sundays and Feast Days in Romsey’s Norman Abbey – its parish church. Romsey is a pleasant market town to the south-west of Winchester, Hampshire.
We join forces a couple of times a year to sing Evensong with similar choirs in the South of England, notably the choir of Sherborne Abbey, Dorset. Every summer, we also spend a week singing services at one of the great cathedrals of England.
Our choristers and choral scholars are drawn from local schools and colleges, whilst the men work for a range of employers in the area. Several have seen their sons grow up as choristers.
We strive to be a family in the wider Christian sense: welcoming to new members; ready to offer responsibility to boys who have demonstrated their maturity and, above all, never content to rest on past achievements.
