MUSIC

Music

Our Sunday 10.30am services are accompanied by the St Philip’s choir, headed by the Director of Music, Rebecca Taylor. Made up of between 8 and 10 enthusiastic and hard working church members, our voluntary choir covers both familiar and new repertoire, from Byrd to Jazz Eucharists! The choir practices before the service each week and ventures beyond the church for annual carol singing. Monthly all-age services see the involvement of our new Children’s Choir, with more modern music. On Festivals we are joined by professional singers to perform larger sung mass settings and anthems.

The SPECR Concert Series

The church of St.Philip’s Earls Court Road provides a beautiful setting for the SPECR Concert Series. Established by Rebecca Taylor, Director of Music at St.Philip’s, the concert series is threefold in its aims.

  • to further enrich the musical community of Kensington by providing a regular aperitif concert of 50 minutes with occasional larger scale events.
  • to provide a platform for emerging artists in the music profession.
  • all proceeds raised and any donations will contribute towards the restoration project of the full size Bechstein grand piano that is currently situated in the church. This will allow greater scope when planning future concerts
