St James's Church, Hampton Hill

Concerts and recitals through the years

The first available records originate from the 1880s when we learn that an organ was bought and that there was an organist and a choir.

Recitals and concerts have been held in the church probably since Revd Fitz Wygram was vicar, performed by young and old alike. Concerts and recitals have been, and still are, performed in the church by many different local community groups. Also, over the years, St James's own musicians have put on recitals for various charities and for their own pleasure.

There are only a few articles about them and only from later years:
Stainers's Crucifixion (2013 March)
St James’s Young Musicians Recital (2007)
Recital by St James's Musicians (2007)
Songs of Springtime (2003)
