Wedding Music

The Organ was built by Bevington of London in 1908 and stands centrally in the West gallery. It has two manuals, pedals and sixteen stops. The instrument has been modified several times, most recently by Sandy Edmonstone of Perth in 1988 and 2002. You can hear it being played by our organist Hazel Murch in the suggested list of Wedding Music below.

The Choir, a volunteer group from the parish, sings from the organ gallery. A selection of the choir’s repertoire is included in a CD entitled “The Bells, Choir and Organ of Dunked Cathedral.”. The CD, costing £10, can be purchased by contacting the Session Clerk.

The list of hymns, readings and organ music below are suggestions and are not intended to restrict your choice.
