Music at St Mary's

The church is blessed with a magnificent organ installed by Norman and Beard of Norwich in 1904. Although small, this organ is ideally suited to the building and music is an integral part of all services except those at 8am.  In bygone days there used to be a robed choir of 16 adults and children. Sadly, this no longer pertains but fortunately St Mary’s has a most proficient organist who was a diocesan organ scholar and is a renowned musician in North Norfolk and who frequently is invited to play the famous Wurlitzer organ at Thursford.  The quality of the music undoubtedly adds to the services and St Mary’s has built up an association with the West Norfolk Singers, an amateur singing group based in Heacham and Dersingham. They contribute to major Services such as the annual Carol Service and the Harvest Festival.
