St Mary's Church Choir


There was a choral tradition at St Mary's from its establishment as a Collegiate Church and St Mary's Choir continues that tradition at our 11am service. With around 20 singers, the choir performs music in a variety of styles from the Church's rich heritage - everything from the plainsong which would have been the first music heard in the building in the 14th century to modern composers such as Kenneth Leighton and John Rutter and everything in between. With passion!

St Mary's Choir is an active and friendly group and new members can be assured of a warm welcome. To get in touch click here.
