The Choir

The present church choir, one of the finest choirs of its type in the UK, is an excellent mixed-voice choir with about 30 members who are currently brought up to music by Stephen Dagg, Director of Music (also Director of the Centre for Young Musicians, a division of the Guildhall School, and the London Schools Symphony Orchestra).

The choir’s repertoire of sacred music ranges from the 16th to the 21st centuries, including a recently commissioned and premièred work by Roxanna Panufnik.

The choir sings to a cathedral standard every week at the Sung Eucharist on Sunday and Choral evensong every fourth Sunday.  It also sings at special services during the year and goes on tour each summer.  Recent tours have been to Dordodgne/Aquitaine (2013), and  Rome (2011, 2012).

In addition to its primary function of leading services at St Alfege, the choir is often invited to sing at other venues and has been broadcast on television on the South Bank Show.  In 2012 the choir was broadcast live on BBC Radio 4 and also whilst on tour to Rome, on Vatican radio.

You can hear recordings of the choir made on our recent tour to the Aquitaine region of France.
