Oh come let us sing to the lord – Psalm 95
St Mary’s is a traditional Episcopalian congregation and the Sunday 10am choral services use either the 1970 and 1982 Liturgies of the Scottish Episcopal Church. The sung setting is a setting written by Patrick Appleford. We have a small robed choir singing from the choir stalls who sing the hymns and setting to enhance the singing of the congregation.
The hymn book we use is Hymns Old and New (New Anglican Edition).
There are two fine pipe organs: The 2 manual and pedal Forster and Andrews organ has responsive mechanical action throughout; we also have a historically important 18th century chamber organ by Samuel Green in excellent condition.
St Mary’s building, with its excellent acoustics, in past times has been a good venue for recitals and concerts and we have hosted many esteemed groups and instrumentalists.
St Mary’s Pro-Cathedral is lucky to have two very fine organs which are in use at all of our services.
St Mary’s Pro-Cathedral has a small and friendly choir group which support many of our services and are involved in special church festivals and concerts.
