St. Bartholomew the Great

St. Bartholomew the Great

London’s oldest parish church

Visit London’s oldest parish church for a mixture of peaceful, reflective choral music and performances responding to the space and its features. Organist James McVinnie makes a nod to St Barts’ history as a notable period-film location in For Weddings and a Funeral. And sackbut ensemble Sacred Bones give a theatrical performance of Purcell funeral music in the churchyard.
