Great Sacred Music

Our world famous choirs lead an introduction to the great classics of our sacred music. Looking either at a particular composer, an anniversary of a world event or a particular topic, an expert in the history or particular thinking introduces each piece, helping the audience to gain appreciation for the depth of the music we already love. People of all faiths and none come weekly to this event.

Thursdays 1pm-1.35pm in the Church

Choral Evensong and Choral Morning Song

Sometimes called “the warm bath of services” Choral Evensong has long been a Christian Worship service loved by people of all faith perspectives. The service consists of prayers sung by the choir and led by the service leader with the option of singing a well known hymn at the end.
