St Bride's: Music

Choir Recordings

Over the years the choir and organist of St Bride's has taken the opportunity to record pieces from the repertoire. The following recordings on CD are the most recent.

The choir is proud to be the first adult professional choir, and also the first London church choir to offer web-casting of services so people can Listen Online to church services.

This is very fitting for a church with such strong media links, and I hope it will bring the distinctive and exciting sound of the St. Bride's choir to a wider audience.

All of these recordings can be purchased via the St Bride's Online Shop, as either CDs or MP3s, or at the church. Proceeds from sales go towards the ongoing work of the church including supporting the Listen Online facility.
