MUSIC AT ALL SAINTS'
During COVID, music has been limited to the organ accompaniment at the Sunday Parish Mass. However, restrictions are soon to be lifted and concert recitals are returning, with the De Kooning Ensemble on Friday 9 July and a three day Summer Music Festival, from 16 - 18 July (see above).
Music will continue to be integral to the life and worship of All Saints'. There has been a long tradition of excellent music making at All Saints' and this continues to this day with an SATB choir who enrich our worship each Sunday and with a monthly Choral Evensong; concerts and participation in music festivals throughout the year; regular organ recitals on our Hill instrument and, since September 2019, a Junior Choir for boys and girls aged 6 to 16.
