Music and Hymns

Animated music stand

Music has always been a strong tradition in our Church and we have had the great fortune of having many talented musicians and singers in our church family that have brought our services alive with songs of praise.

Animated ChoirHaving collected many midi files for the website and visited other parish sites, I thought it a good idea to give our visitors the opportunity to hear some of our our favourite hymns when they want and even download them.

All of these midi files come from free websites and have no copyright attached to them.

To hear each song, simply left click on the words and it should run in most media players. To save the song then right click on the words and choose save target as from the pop up menu and save it to a location on your computer, to listen to it another time.

Most of these Hymns can be found in our hymn book: Catholic Hymns Old & New, which can be bought online at (large print, music books hardback etc all avaiable)

The Hymns are in alphabetical order by first line but there are some hymns to the same tune(*) or known better by their choruses and these are indicated in brackets following the first line.

While shepherds watched their flocks by night
