Director of MusicMusic at St Mary's

St Mary’s has a strong musical tradition. Built around the regular weekly services of Sung Eucharist and Choral Evensong, our highly-regarded choir of boys and adults sings a wide variety of music. St Mary's Ladies Choir lead the Sunday worship and perform an anthem once a month. In 2016 we started our girls' choir. During the summer months a 'scratch' choir operates, open to all.
