All Saints Margaret Street

Music at All Saints Margaret Street

All Saints ChoirMusic plays an integral part in worship at All Saints, just as it has done within worship since the earliest centuries of the Christian church.

The principal musical services are High Mass, on Sundays at 11am, and on Holy Days during the week at 6.30pm, while Choral Evensong and Benediction are sung every Sunday evening at 6pm.

We welcome all to join us in our choral worship and enjoy the rich tradition of music at All Saints in the presence of God.
