Music is central to the worshipping life of St Marylebone. The parish church has a fine musical tradition, drawing on its 10-voice professional choir, four manual Rieger organ and the skills of the Assistant Director of Music, Jamie Rogers, the Organ Scholar, and the Organist and Director of Music, Gavin Roberts. During the Sunday morning Eucharist there is a splendid choral setting of the Mass with the liturgy being further enhanced by a Gradual Anthem and Communion Motet (once a month, during term time, sung by our Junior Choir). The organ contributes to the worship in accompaniment of the choir and in the playing of organ voluntaries. The choir sing at the monthly Sunday evening healing service and for carol services throughout Advent, Christmas and Epiphany. 

The parish church’s musicians also regularly sing and play at Weddings and Memorial Services along with other events both within the parish church and more widely. As well as the annual St Marylebone Festival (usually the last week of July), there is a vibrant programme of concerts taking place in the parish church. The parish church’s close link with the Royal Academy of Music means that a number of Academy events take place at St Marylebone in addition to the regular use of the building for concerts given by outside groups.
