Our Choral Tradition

St Mary-le-Tower, in the heart of Ipswich, has long been recognised as a centre for choral excellence.

Today it continues to offer a traditional style of choral performance with a real emphasis on the involvement of young people.

The choir comprises three sections, boys, girls and adults.  At our Sunday services the boys, girls or adult sopranos sing the top (soprano or treble) line with the adults and male choral scholars singing the alto, tenor and bass parts.

At major festivals and other events, the entire choir will combine, frequently performing in front of hundreds of people.

The choir frequently travels both in the UK and abroad.  Including Edinburgh, Durham, Paris and USA.


“the church’s incredible choir raised the roof with a feast of festive favourites.”
