Every summer the church of St Mary, Orchardleigh hosts a series of Choral Evensongs sung by visiting choirs.
We are incredibly grateful to those choirs who come to lead our worship, all the services are of an exceptionally high quality and the music ranges from plainsong to the music of living composers via many stalwarts of the ‘Cathedral repertoire’.
In 2018 we were pleased to welcome the choirs of:
Christ Church, Frome
St John the Baptist, Devizes
Our parish choir to celebrate the Patronal Festival
