'Costumed group of singers and instrumentalists who perform music of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, reviving the psalmody and hymnody of the rural parish church from around 200 years ago, so much beloved of Thomas Hardy and exemplified in his novels and poetry. This raw and exciting music is genuinely "music of the people", which found its way from the established church into the independent chapels, before becoming lost and almost forgotten by the beginning of the twentieth century. The Quire's repertoire also includes secular music from the Georgian period, and psalmody from the American tradition in the same era, taking to heart the instruction of John Wesley to "sing lustily and with good courage".'

‘Since the first choir was founded in 1123, music has filled this magnificent mediaeval church of St Mary, Warwick. Choral singing is one of Britain’s richest traditions and a vibrant, living heritage which is often the preserve of our great cathedrals. The fine choirs of this church are precious; they transform and inspire worship and enrich the community of Warwick. The English choral tradition remains central to music at St Mary’s Church and today’s flourishing choirs enjoy an international reputation. St Mary’s Church is also a popular venue for a range of high quality concerts and other events.‘
