The Choir of St. Michael’s

The Choir of St Michael's is a friendly, mixed voice choir with over twenty adults and children. The core repertoire is a varied one, centring on the traditional Anglican canon. The choir is not only the musical focal point for each Sunday morning Eucharist, but also gives concerts and recordings.

Oliver Gooch has been Director of Music since 2003, formerly Organ Scholar of both Worcester Cathedral and Magdalene College, Cambridge. The Assistant Organist is Lesley Burch.

Practices take place each Friday evening, at 7.00 p.m. If you are interested in joining the ladies and gentlemen of the choir, please contact Oliver Gooch at: ollie@musicatbray.co.uk
