Music At St James’
Music is an important element of the liturgy at St James’ and we continue to search out those hymns and songs which inspire us and enable us to broaden our sense of worship, whether catholic or reformed, evangelical or charismatic, traditional or contemporary.
We sing a variety of congregational settings at the 10am Parish Mass on Sundays and are currently arranging new settings of Responsorial Psalms. We look forward to the formation of a small singing group for other special occasions.
We do not currently have a permanent organist, but hope to find someone to fill this position before the end of the year.
St James’ has six bells and they are rung before the Parish Mass each Sunday morning and after weddings.
Each year St James’ hosts a series of ten concerts under the title ‘The Islington Proms’ and regularly serves as the London venue for our Musicians in Residence, ‘Poeticall Musicke’.
