Music

Music plays an integral part in worship at St Matthew’s. The choir is a small professional ensemble which sings at the Sunday Mass and Wednesday Choral Evensong. They have recently broadcast for BBC Radio 3 Choral Evensong and Radio 4 Sunday Worship. Repertoire is drawn from early plainchant to the 21st century. We are proud to commission new choral works by young artists. Recordings of the choir can be accessed on YouTube.

Westminster Chamber Music Society

St Matthew’s hosts a series of Saturday evening concerts in the intimate and atmospheric surroundings of a church building which can boast magnificent acoustics. It really is ideal for chamber music. Concerts begin at 18.00 and last for one hour.
