     Easter at St Bart's is truly magnificent.

    

     Liturgy, music and preaching combine to present an 
     unforgettable spiritual experience.

     

      It is a long-established tradition that Gounod's wonderful setting of the Mass is
      sung by the choir  with a professional orchestra drawn from local musicians.

    

      This has been done without exception since the early 1890s.

     

       Do come and join us for this unique occasion.
