‘We are a small society of organ and organ music enthusiasts with about 60 members, mainly, but not exclusively, from South London ... Our primary activities ... involve visits to a number of churches where we are introduced to the organ, hear it being played, and get an opportunity to play it ourselves. Other activities could be talks or demonstrations. The meetings are informal and some people just come to hear the music, but it is also a marvellous opportunity to share thoughts with other like-minded people and establish contacts and broaden our general perspective.‘

‘The Choral Society was launched in 1998 and is a thriving musical group. The aim of the Society is to practise and perform music to suit all tastes and have a good time. The singers are of all abilities and experiences. The only two criteria for joining are singing and being able to sing in tune. We have vocal warm ups and wonderful music ranging from popular to classical, including Christmas favourites ... We generally work towards three main public performances each year, often with orchestral accompaniment. We also sing at local festivals and community events ... Formed in 2009 to accompany the Choir at concerts, RBCS Chamber Orchestra is a group of talented and versatile young musicians, mainly drawn from the London music colleges. The musicians benefit from regular opportunities to perform in public, as part of their musical development.’

'Southwark Cathedral is a popular venue for concerts and recitals ... The Cathedral ... has boasted a fine Choir of boys and men for many years, offering pupils at day schools, both independent and state, the opportunity to learn music in the unique English Cathedral tradition. They have become well known through their broadcasts, tours and recordings. As part of the Millennium Project, marking the year 2000, Southwark Cathedral Girls' Choir was formed, on similar lines to the boys, to enrich the Cathedral's musical heritage and to offer the same opportunity for musical, spiritual and social development ... The Cathedral's organ was built by Lewis & Co. of Ferndale Road, Brixton, south London, and completed in 1897 ... The stop list is now as Lewis left it, except for the Viola 4' which was retained because it was a gift in memoriam.'
