The beautiful church of Saint Bartholomew’s, Clyde Road, was consecrated in 1867. Many of its original features are intact, such as the sanctuary mosaics and the elaborate wrought iron choir screen. The architect was Thomas Wyatt. The church has always been known for its High Anglican liturgical tradition.

The church is also celebrated for its fine music. The choir of boys and men, the only remaining all-male parish choir in Ireland, generally sings at least one of the choral services each Sunday during term-time. The remainder are sung by the girls’ choir, which was formed in 2002, and the Elgin Chorale (which sings during choir vacations). The choirs’ repertoire is fully representative of the major styles of choral music from the sixteenth century up to the present day. With its superb acoustic, splendid organ and convenient location, Saint Bartholomew’s is becoming more widely known as an excellent concert venue.
