Music at St Michael’s is led by a small team of dedicated and experienced musicians and composers.
Over several years music at St Michael’s benefited greatly from the skills of Steven Martin and then Neil Page, with a number of talented young Assistant Conductors, including James Bradley, Dominic Coad, Darren Oliver, A;ex West, Amt Down and Erika Borley – we thank them all for their dedication to the place of sacred music in the liturgy.

Owing to work commitments, Alex West stood down as Director of Music in July 2015, after the Choir Tour to Wolfenbüttel in Germany; we thank him for a very fruitful year at the helm. The Church appointed Erika Borley (now Wagstaff) as Director of Music from July 2015-7. We were delighted that Erika could return to St Michael’s to lead the Choir alongside her work as a High School Maths teacher. Amy Down has skilfully organised, rehearsed and conducted the choir from Nov 2017 to Easter 2018. In May 2018, Dr Nigel Browne returned as Organist and Neil Page returned from Florida to Exeter to lead the Music at St Michael’s.
As funds permit, we hope to audition and appoint Choral Scholars again in future.
