'All Saints has a strong musical tradition going back hundreds of years. By the sixteenth century All Saints had a choir which walked in ceremonial processions and sang at special services ...  Over the past half-century the range and quality of music has continued to grow, and in 1988 an organ by the distinguished Danish builder Erik Frobenius was installed, securing All Saints as Kingston’s leading venue for concerts as well as other dramatic and artistic events. The choir continues and is known nationally for the quality of its music making and sings an extensive repertoire. As well as contributing to the worship of the church, it makes broadcasts and recordings, has excellent connections with local schools and has regularly produced choral scholars at Oxford and Cambridge Universities.'

‘As a proportion of total music composed, religious music has declined in recent centuries - in particular since the mid-20th century - though many composers still work in this area, harnessing the power of music to help communicate, explain and explore religious texts, and to capture some of their spirituality ... All Saints was one of the first Churches in London to use Viennese Masses, and the choir currently sings 11 Masses by Mozart and 7 by Haydn ... In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the revival of traditional liturgical worship within the Church of England from the mid 19th century - of which All Saints was an important part - saw a significant stream of settings from Britain ... The church's repertoire continues to represent a wide cross section of music and worshipers can hear music from the 16th century until the present day - the repertoire embracing such figures as Purcell, Blow, Boyce, Bairstow, Dyson, Harwood, Jackson, Mathias, Walton, Tavener ...’

Today it remains one of the last non-cathedral musical foundations to offer music on an almost daily basis.‘

‘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 and the magnificent Walker organ 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. In 2005/6 the organ underwent a major restoration project costing in excess of a quarter of a million pounds and is now a sought-after recital instrument and many distinguished organists perform regularly at the Church.’
