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.
At the Sunday morning ten o’clock Eucharist, our robed choir numbers an average of 14-18 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.

Our next open choir event is Saturday 30th June: full choral evensong at 6pm (4pm rehearsal) at St Mary-at-Finchley with the choir of St John’s, Palmer’s Green. Organist: Drew Sellis (St Mary-at-Finchley organ scholar).
