  • At the beginning of 2015 we said goodbye to our Director of Music, Thomas Keogh, who moved to similar role at Holy Cross RC church in Leicester. St Augustine's was quite a daunting and demanding position for Tom to take on, and in the two and a half years he was with us performed the role admirably, maintaining a choral repertoire at St. Augustine's which had been greatly extended by Darren Hogg, and Paul Richards, something which has sadly been lost in most parish churches. One of Tom's achievements in his time here was the establishment of more use of plainsong, especially at evensong.

  • 2016 onwards: Sarah Fox
