West Galley Quire

Immanuel's Ground
is a West Gallery Quire
and was formed in 2001 in Warwick.
         Together with a small band of instruments, Immanuel's Ground meets on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of
      
of the month at Northgate Methodist Church Hall in Warwick (CV34 4TH). 
We  sing and play in the tradition of the old west gallery musicians, probably best described in Thomas Hardy's 'Under the Greenwood Tree'. We currently have vacancies for new singers. If you'd like to join us for practice at
any time of the year, please get in touch. We're very friendly and there is no formal audition !

Here is a small pamphlet which gives you a
short description of what we do:

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
.
