“Music is one of the great
channels of faith: as a composer for
important that you take that
seriously. Music, especially when it’s
combined with great
architecture, really can be a stairway
The music planned for the Sunday morning services at Holy Trinity covers a wide range of styles
and periods of composition as befits the ‘Cathedral of the Arts’. The resident ‘Choir of Holy Trinity’,
directed by Mr Andrew O’Brien, and ‘ConQordia’, directed by Mr Mike Abrams, provide the musical settings
for our Sung Eucharists, with a superb mix of English Choral and European music from the Renaissance and
Baroque periods, spanning some 500 years of liturgical composition. The two choirs are supported by
organist Michael Brough.
The organ in Holy Trinity is one of the finest and largest in any parish church in England. Originally
built in 1891 by JW Walker & Sons, it was one of the most modern organ designs of its time. John Dando
Sedding, the church architect, was himself an accomplished organist and he provided in his design for the
church a magnificent and capacious organ chamber over 40 feet high.
