English Organ Music

For musicians and music lovers, the church of St Alfege has long been revered as the burial place of Thomas Tallis the ‘Father' of English Church Music.

The present church choir, one of the finest choirs of it's type in the UK, is an excellent mixed-voice choir with about 30 members who are currently brought up to music by Stephen Dagg, Director of Music (also Director of the Centre for Young Musicians, a division of the Guildhall School, and the London Schools Symphony Orchestra).
