'All Saints' has enjoyed a rich musical tradition since the building of the church. This is due to several factors, the wonderful acoustic that we are privileged to have, the fine Hele organ that resides in the church and the good fortune that the church has always attracted musicians of a high calibre. We are fortunate in that we are able to maintain a choral tradition here. Many local and national choirs, orchestras and soloists regularly enjoy giving performances in our church.'
Music by the Bridge 'Talented young and often local musicians perform in church in monthly Friday concerts (February–July and September–November). There is a bar at the back of church. Concerts are free but there is a retiring collection to support choral scholarships at All Saints ... The Parish Choir performs a wide range of music, both popular cathedral-style repertoire and more unusual music – from striking South American baroque works to South African choral dances and new commissions by contemporary composers ... Once a term the choir joins with the choirs of St Luke’s, Chelsea and St Martin-in-the-Fields for a Three Choirs Festival Choral Evensong'.

Every year, music, along with other art forms, is celebrated intensively over a weekend at the All Saints' Arts Festival.'

'Music in St Mary's has for many years been an important part of the Dorchester and wider District scene. The excellence of the acoustic and the beauty of the architecture, itself a late example of the arts and crafts movement, are a good starting point. The welcoming attitude of the church to all musical groups has helped to make St Mary's the premier choice for large and smaller scale performances.'
'St Mary’s is honoured to have a large and quite superb "Father" Willis pipe organ of three manuals and pedals, built in 1889 by “Father” Henry Willis – one of the greatest of English organ-builders in the Nineteenth Century – to a specification and quality closely similar to the renowned organ of Truro Cathedral (built two years earlier by the same distinguished Company). It was taken from the church of St Augustine, Highbury, London and installed here in 1975 after the fire of 1973, in which our original "Father" Willis instrument was destroyed. The instrument is comparatively little-known, despite its prestigious origins ... Concerts and recitals are a feature of Parish life; a regular series being arranged throughout the year.'
'Saint Mary's is a popular venue for musical and theatrical performances ... A lunchtime concert is held every Saturday at 12pm providing a platform for local talent ... These live events take an informal, enlightening and, above all, entertaining approach to music making ...

'Music has played an important role at St Matthew’s since the consecration of the building in 1893, and the Church has been at the forefront of contemporary music and art for over half a century. Today, at sung services, the wonderful sounds of the Choir ... continue to fill the building, inspiring and enhancing our worship ... St Matthew's is also home to arguably the finest parish church organ of its type in the country. The four manual organ was built in 1895 by the firm J W Walker and Sons and is now of great historical importance ...'

'St Peter's is at the heart of Berkhamsted's thriving cultural scene and a leading supporter of the arts in the town. Our programme of events includes lunchtime recitals and evening concerts in the beautiful setting of our historic church ... The Organ in St Peter's church stands in the St John Chantry by the choir stalls. It is a striking modern instrument encased in English oak with colourful pipework, and plays a central role in the musical life of St Peter's.'
'St Peter's is blessed with a pipe organ played from a remote console. The organ has been professionally overhauled in recent years with two new stops added. We have three excellent organists to make the most of this wonderful instrument at our services. We have recently acquired a modern grand piano to extend our musical capabilities. St Peter’s provides an excellent venue for periodic music concerts and visiting choirs which always prove popular locally ... St Peter's is a busy and thriving church offering services to suit all tastes, from the very traditional to the modern and everything in between. We have a great musical tradition with our church choir and now the orchestra plus the future long term plans of an early music ensemble, worship band, big band, chamber choir, youth choir and a festival chorus ...'
