Since Vatican II described music as “a treasure of inestimable value, greater even than that of any other art.” (Sacrosanctum Concilium) we take liturgical music seriously.

The Ordinary and Extraordinary forms of the Mass are celebrated in the Parish; Propers and Ordinary are sung when possible.

We are a small Parish, but are blessed to have excellent musicians available at all weekend Masses. Our organist Fraser Pearce (http://www.fraserpearce.co.uk/) has a website. Both Fraser and  our cantors Anne Marie and Angela are available for weddings and funerals.
