Music

St. Oswald's Church has a long tradition of fine music in the liturgy.

Choral Services are sung most Sundays the exceptions being:-

  • Sunday between Christmas and Epiphany
  • The two Sundays after Easter
  • From mid-July to the 2nd Sunday in September. However, the Choir returns for the 1st Sunday in August which is kept as our Patronal Festival (Feast of St. Oswald - actual day 5th August)
  • The 1st Sunday of school half term weeks

We welcome applications from choirs to sing the services during the Choir holidays.

St. Oswald's Choir is one of a very few in Shropshire that can routinely sing the music of the Anglican cathedral and collegiate church repertoire and is the only one that has a soprano line solely made up of young voices.

For details of the choir please see the relevant pages

We offer 2 chorister scholarships each year at Oswestry School, carrying a substantial remission of fees. For details see the page on chorister scholarships.
