Since the first choir was founded in 1123, music has filled this magnificent mediaeval church of St Mary, Warwick. Choral singing is one of Britain’s richest traditions and a vibrant, living heritage which is often the preserve of our great cathedrals. The fine choirs of this church are precious; they transform and inspire worship and enrich the community of Warwick.
The English choral tradition remains central to music at St Mary’s Church and today’s flourishing choirs enjoy an international reputation.
St Mary’s Church is also a popular venue for a range of high quality concerts and other events.
