Friends of Music
Formed in the late 1970’s by the then Minster Organist, Philip Tordoff, the Friends of Music was created to support all things musical in the Minster with a particular focus on the choirs and the organs.
Today it has around 30 members, some of whom are members of the congregation, others are local people who take a keen interest in the music and some, possibly former choristers, may have even moved away but still like to keep in touch. A small committee meets termly to discuss the development of the music and its needs.
A recent initiative has been to provide new cassocks and surplices for both the choristers and the adults of the choir. This is a massive undertaking and an expensive one, given the choir numbers around 45 people! The committee also organises the choir Summer Tour which usually takes place in August.
