Sing Inside London operates through the Faith Centre at HMP Thameside, delivering regular workshops on choral singing for prison residents. Prisoners are introduced to vocal technique and church music skills through a broad range of repertoire in a morning rehearsal before these skills are put into practice in the afternoon as they form the church choir for Roman Catholic Mass. The choir performs as a standalone ensemble during the service, performing to the rest of the congregation during communion, and leads the congregation in singing the hymns and Mass setting. External singers also join forces with this choir for special occasions such as the annual carol service, allowing us to sing in four part harmony.
