Today St. Peter's is rarely used for services but over the last decade has become well known for its Carol concert, usually held on the second Saturday in December at 4pm. First time visitors are usually overawed by the beauty of this lovely old church lit by hundreds of candles. Apart from the Carol Concert there are sometimes musical recitals at warmer times! Fiori Musicali, a group of talented musicians bring alive the drama and passion of 18th Century music. The concerts are very well attended and Fiori Musicali return each year at the end of June.
