In addition to leading the congregational worship, the choir performs a wide range of repertoire from plainsong and renaissance polyphony to new music composed specially for the ensemble. We welcome new members and would be happy to hear from anyone with musical ambition and a good sense of humour. Please contact Julian Kelly, director of music, at email@example.com or by visiting in person after 10.00 a.m. Mass on Sunday.

Beauty and cruelty in nature. Tuneful birds and deadly spiders. Soloist Eleanor Turner weaves a charming web in Patterson’s concerto for harp and strings. Respighi brings baroque imitations of bird song to today’s chamber orchestra and Roussel’s ballet music gives insects very human emotions with a surprising twist (spoiler alert). Mozart of course transcends all these earthly concerns.
