The monks of Ealing have valued Christian music in its many forms as one way in which all may participate profoundly in the mystery of Christian worship.
Music, along with drama, is one of the performing arts.
We greatly value the musical traditions that have been nurtured over the years at Ealing Abbey and would like to develop them to give greater glory to God and to be of greater service to the local church.
