For over 100 years St Peter’s had a traditional robed choir of men and boys and was able to continue in this tradition long after many choirs ceased to exist.  St Peters now admits ladies and children (of both sexes) to the choir, and after a few years of experimentation with this it is now the settled format.  We continue to uphold the traditional music of the church including all the Advent, Christmas and Easter services as well a regular Choral Evensong.  If you are interested in joining please contact the choirmaster or organist, details on the contacts page.
