Choral services

Choral services are sung by the St Peter’s Singers once a month or so. Choral Evensong takes place on the last Sunday of the month at 6.30pm. At Easter, Advent and Christmas we put on  seasonal choral and carol services.

We present a varied rage of music from medieval plainchant through the great Anglican choral repertoire of the 16th to 20th centuries. We also commission composers to write new works specially for the choir.
