Choir and Music

 

Saint Mary's Church, Barton-on-Humber is proud of its music. The Choirmaster and Organist is Geoffrey Brown, who recently celebrated 40 years as Organist. The organ is by Foster and Andrews of Hull (a world-renowned firm of organ builders between 1843 and 1956) and dates from 1898 when it was originally installed in Saint Peter's Church. It was moved to Saint Mary's in 1973. In the 1990s, we spent £25000 on its renovation. To celebrate the centenary, the renovated organ was rededicated on Saturday July 4th, 1998.

What does the Choir sound like?

A selection of hymns, psalms and anthems in mp3 format recorded by the choir can be downloaded here. Feel free to add them to your iPod collection. An older collection from 1978, recorded by Roy Eayers, now digitized from LP is also available for download. These are of a rather higher quality.

You can visit other Church Choir web sites by clicking the Anglican Church Music Site. Many of them are cathedral choirs, so we are in good company!

The CyberHymnal. Enormous range of hymns with excellent details of authors and composers and midi files of the tunes. The midi files are a bit crummy. For better sound, try:

Oremus Hymnal. The sound is better on this site and uses Quicktime rather than proprietary sound software.
