Our choir

The Choir is comprised of individuals with diverse musical experience, but with a common purpose: to use their voices for the glory of God. The choir sings at our 11am service and for services on major festivals.

Visiting Singers - welcome!

If you are a visitor to Gibraltar (or nearby in Spain) and would like to sing with the Holy Trinity choir at the Sunday service (11am) you would be very welcome.

Our Director of Music elect - Thomas

Some legal formalities have yet to be completed, but we hope that our new Director of Music will be able to start work in January.

Following his graduation from the Frankfurt and Karlsruhe Conservatoires of Music, German-born classical composer and organist Thomas Flessenkaemper began teaching music at the Xinghai Conservatory of Music in Guangzhou, right after leaving his alma mater. He was then appointed as the full-time Director of Music at the renowned pilgrimage church St Lamberti in Coesfeld. Since then, he has devoted his time to performance engagements, church music, and music education in China, Germany, France and the United Kingdom. His choral and chamber music works are regularly performed and an integral part of church choir repertoire in German-speaking countries. In recent years Thomas has been working mainly on his own music but also serving as director of music and organist in churches within North Yorkshire.

Thomas said:
"I am excited to have been appointed to direct the music at Holy Trinity Cathedral. It will be a great privilege to contribute to the worship in a building of such unique and exotic beauty. I have been struck by the warmth and friendliness of the Cathedral community, of which I look forward to becoming a part."

Our organ

The organ was built in 1880 by a London firm of organ builders, Bryceson & Ellis.

In 1952 it was moved from what is now the Lady Chapel to its present location on a musicians gallery above the west entrance.

In the early 1990s the organ was restored by Bower & Company with addition pipes added as part of a tonal enhancement scheme. The most recent restoration was carried out by Cooper & Co in 2017 where the instrument was thoroughly overhauled.
