St Mary’s has a strong tradition of choral and congregational singing within the Anglican tradition and enjoys a wide range of church music based on hymns, songs, the mass setting and a different anthem each week.

St Mary-at-Finchley Choir is affiliated to the Royal School of Church Music.

Adult choir
At the Sunday morning ten o’clock Eucharist, our robed choir numbers an average of 14-17 singers. We sing a wide range of repertoire in four-part harmony, and are well supported by a team of organists. The choir rehearses in the choir vestry on Thursday evenings from 8pm till around 9.30pm. New members are welcome. Please contact the Director of Music, Alison Fisher for more information.

Community Choir

Interested in singing but not sure about a twice-weekly commitment? You could try out the St Mary-at-Finchley Community Choir. Join us for the Christmas Carol service or for one of our (approximately annual) larger choir events which have included liturgical performances of Fauré Requiem (with organ);  John Rutter Requiem (with a small instrumental ensemble);Walford Davies Requiem; Choral evensong for the Queen’s Jubilee.

Our next event is a Choral Evensong to celebrate the Queen’s 90th Birthday on Sunday 12th June at 6pm (4pm rehearsal, plus the three previous Thursday evenings 8pm-9.30pm). Please contact Alison Fisher if you are interested via the church office or email Alison.smart@ntlworld.com
