Croydon Minster has over 70 singers involved in four choirs. The Choir of Men & Boys, the Girls' Choir, the Schola Cantorum and Croindene sing four choral services each week, give regular concerts throughout the year, and have toured, broadcast and recorded.
The church boasts a fine 4-manual organ by the celebrated 19th century organ-builder William Hill, and has a distinguished track record of sending young organists to Oxbridge and music colleges. Recently, we have provided organ scholars for both King's College and St John's College, Cambridge.
The music department is led by Ronny Krippner, Director of Music. He is assisted by Tom Little (Sub-Organist), Martin How (Organist Laureate) and David Warren (Organ Scholar).
Friends of Music at Croydon Minster
Friends of Music at Croydon Minster was founded in 2008 to support the work of the music department. Each year, the Friends promote a series of special services and concerts, and take a particular interest in the educational needs of the boy and girl choristers. Donors are offered ticket discounts to concerts sung by the Minster Choirs and are invited to pre-concert talks and receptions. Donations start from as little as £25.00. Please consider becoming a Friend and help to sustain and develop the musical life of this vibrant Minster church. A donor form is available at the back of church.
