St James' has had a strong music tradition stretching back many years. With a choir of fourteen comprising seven sopranos, three altos/contraltos, two tenors and two basses, they sing at 10.00am service on Sunday and practice at 7.30pm on a Friday evening. They are an excellent group of singers with a good repertoire ranging from early Tudor to modern day compositions.
