MUSIC AT ALL SAINTS'
Music is 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 and regular organ recitals on our Hill instrument.
