There has always been a strong musical tradition at St. Nicholas’, with an active ‘All Age Choir‘ which leads the tradition of an Anglican sung Eucharist at most of our 10.30 am Sunday Services and all special Sunday services. Michael Foy, our Director of Music is key to our musical success.
Congregations at most Sunday Services enjoy pre-service and post-service organ recitals, played by Michael Foy on our impressive ‘Norman and Beard’ organ.
Since 2013, with the exception of 2020 and 2021, 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. school
Musical contributions from our congregation. We are very fortunate to have members of our church, retired professional violinists, Edwin Paling and Rosalin Lazaroff and professional pianist Kirsty Ligertwood who perform regularly at our services and music festivals.
