Immanuel's Ground is a West Gallery Quire,
formed in 2001 in Warwick.
Together with a small band of instruments we sing and play music
from the period roughly 1700 to 1860 which was once the mainstay
of church and chapel music throughout England, and to some extent, America.
We
draw our members from the "Heart of England", which, generally speaking,
is Oxfordshire, Northamptonshire, Worcestershire and Warwickshire. 
We do also have several members from further afield.

       
We practice at Northgate Church Hall, Warwick, CV34 4TH on the
2nd, 4th and 5th Wednesdays in the month at 8 pm.

The Quire has suffered from a loss of membership over the last two years, and we would love to welcome more singers and instrumentalists, whether they have heard of west gallery music or not. Come to any of our practices on a Wednesday evening in Warwick - there's a free car-park right next to the Hall in which we practise. We are lucky to have one or two instrumentalists come to join us,
but we seek more singers on all parts, and especially Tenors!!


Mid-Shires Quires day was on 22 April,
Thank you to all who booked!!
We had a great time, and filled the hall at Byfield.

When Musick's notes with steps already move
Thro' virtue's paths, and breathe with heav'nly love,
The rapt'rous mind from earthly mansions flies,
And soars aloft above the starry skies
.

Nuneaton 1774
