There is an outstanding musical tradition at Chingford. As well as a very popular community choir at the Old Church there are several large Parish Church choirs who maintain a cathedral-style repertoire and regularly tour in the UK and overseas. We are proud to say that our choirs are among the largest and best of any parish in England. To see and hear the Sunday services the choirs sang in Truro Cathedral on 6 August 2023, go to https://www.youtube.com/live/EZyzoGRlLXA?feature=share and https://www.youtube.com/live/mMbm2VgJ55s?feature=share
