Halifax Minster has a long tradition of music making and this includes choirs, the Harrison and Snetzler organs, and an ever expanding concert programme. Currently the Vicar is acting Director of Music supported by Graham Gribbin as Organist and Phillip Tordoff as Organ Emeritus.

The Minster Choir

The Minster Choir sings every Sunday during term time and rehearse Tuesday evenings in the Song School of the Minster. The Choir regularly performs both for television and radio, and we are always looking for new members.

The Minster Chamber Choir

The Minster Chamber Choir is for experienced singers who sing occasional services, and some concerts. The standard is high, and an ability to read music is essential. Joint occasions with the Minster Choir and Brass make for an exciting performance, especially around Christmas and the Minster Summer Festival. New members always welcome.

Organ Recitals


The Friends of the Music organise weekly Organ recitals which take place each Thursday at 1pm.


Concert Programme


The Minster hosts concerts throughout the year. Further information can be found in the Events section of the website, and enquiries about hiring the Minster for a concert or charity fundraising event should be made through the Minster Offices.

All enquiries with regard to Music should be made with the Vicar Hilary Barber.
