St Austin’s Choir

The choir provides the music liturgy for the 11:00am Mass on Sunday mornings. Our choir is also available to sing at weddings and funerals on request. The choir sing a wide range of musical styles and the choir’s repertoire covers music from the last thousand years. The liturgical music includes plainchant Masses, polyphonic Masses and modern English settings. 

Along with the liturgical music the choir performs recitals, undertakes tours and occasionally sing at St Anne’s Cathedral in Leeds. In recent years the choir has sung the Vigil Mass at St Peter’s Basilica in Rome and performed a recital at Notre Dame in Paris. In 2019 the choir toured Austria -singing in Salzburg and Innsbruck.

The choir provides the perfect complement for a wedding and the music can be provided before and during the service. Organists, soloists and instrumentalists can also be provided (fees do apply). Please do contact the choir if you wish to discuss your ceremony. We can assist in planning the musical side of your ceremony.

Organ/Choral Scholarship

The choir and parish are looking to run an organ (and possibly choral) scholarship scheme in the near future. We will be looking for a student in years 12/13 of college or an undergraduate. The scheme will have a bursary and an element of training in organ and in music liturgy. If you are interested please contact the choir.
