'Playing the ukulele is fun and can be done by anyone. No experience is needed to pick it up, learn 3 or 4 chords and then start singing along. No exams, no rules, just good fun. All members of the group need to be members of the Arts Society. If you are already a member through another group you do not need to join again.'

'Formed in 1992 ... We sing West Gallery Music: the all but forgotten rural church music of the 18th and early 19th centuries. At that time, most small churches were organ-less and their choirs were led by fiddles, clarinets, cellos, bassoons etc – music florid and lively, rhythmically energetic, delighting in earthy (sometimes unorthodox) harmonies and simple polyphony. Victorian reformers disliked the style preferring the more decorous " Hymns Ancient and Modern", sung by children’s choirs, to organ or harmonium accompaniment.' (The Choir's name is taken from hymn words by Charles Wesley.)

'Music is at the heart of all that we do. It lifts us when we are sad and it helps us celebrate our most joyous moments in life. Some are given the gift to perform, and we are very fortunate to have some talented musicians in the Priory, and their singing and playing enhances our worship as they join their voices with the angels in praising God ... Our music programme offers a wide ranging experience from worship at any of our choral services, or an organ recital, to a concert by one of our young performers or experienced professional musicians ...'
