There has always been a strong musical tradition at St. Nicholas’, with an active ‘All Age Choir‘ who lead the tradition of an Anglican sung Eucharist at most of our 10.30am Sunday Services and all special Sunday services. Michael Foy, our organist and choir master is key to the success of our music.
Our congregations at most Sunday Services enjoy pre-service and post-service organ recitals, played by Michael Foy our musical director, on our impressive ‘Norman and Beard’ organ.
Since 2013 St. Nicholas’ hosts a week long Annual Music Festival in Church where The St. Nicholas’ Singers, our community choir, traditionally perform the first concert with its repertoire of sacred choral music and anthems, in aid of church funds.
We have continuing links with the St. Nicholas’ Primary School, from where we regularly recruit and welcome young choristers, together with links to other local schools to the church choir.
We are also very fortunate to have members of our church who perform regularly at our services: retired professional violinists, Edwin Paling and Rosalin Lazaroff, and professional pianist Kirsty Ligertwood.
