Music at St Cuthbert’s:

St Cuthbert’s has maintained a high standard of music making since the beginning of the 20th Century.  
Under incumbent Director of Music Quintin Beer , and Organist Seb Gillot , both the liturgical music programme and externally organised events continue to flourish. The church maintains a professional quartet of singers, all of whom are distinguished musicians in their own fields. The choir’s repertoire ranges from sixteenth-century polyphony to more contemporary music and it regularly premieres new works.
 
There are plenty of opportunities for professional singers at St Cuthbert’s Church. The Director of Music is always happy to hear from singers who are interested in joining the deputy list. Please be in touch with him directly (
quintin.beer@saintcuthbert.org ) to arrange an audition.
 
St Cuthbert’s frequently liaises with orchestras, notably the
Academy of St Mary-le-Bow , for liturgical orchestral masses and evensongs throughout the year. Additionally, the church maintains a monthly voluntary Evensong choir, The Saint Matthias Singers. For more information about joining the choir, visit the Saint Matthias Singers tab above.
 
The church has been home to the semi-professional ensemble,
The Lacock Scholars , for a number of years and the choir frequently performs recitals here. In addition, the church hosts many other groups and orchestras as well as performers of solo recitals and chamber concerts. For details about hiring the church for your event, please contact the Parish Administrator on admin@saintcuthbert.org .




  

There have been a number of distinguished Organists associated with St Cuthbert's including Leonard Priestly, Douglas Coates , David Bruce-Payne , Simon Lindley and Michael King. Douglas Coates, who served as Director of Music and Organist from 1948-1972 built up a Choir of 27 Men and Boys and held an enviable position in the London Church Music scene. Lennox Berkeley , the famous British composer, had his Missa Brevis  given one of its first performances at St Cuthbert's. 

The Church has a fine 4 Manual, 
Alfred Hunter Organ installed in 1900 which has been played by many famous Organists. In 2003 the Console was totally refurbished with Solid State Technology and a Piston Capture system being installed. It is hoped that we can raise sufficient funds in due course for a complete overhaul of the instrument. If you would like to contribute to the restoration of this beautiful instrument, then please be in touch with the Director of Music ( quintin.beer@saintcuthbert.org ).
