Founded in 1983, Consort celebrated its 32nd anniversary in 2015.  St Peter's Consort has sung in well over 300 concerts and services. Several professional recordings have been made and there have been four live broadcasts on Radio 4. Thousands of pounds have been raised for charities and local church funds.

John North relinquished his position as Director in December 2008 after 25 years at the helm, and was succeeded as Director in January 2009 by Tom Moore MA Bmus ARCO, who was at that time Assistant Director of Music at Wakefield Cathedral and had been accompanist at the Subscription Concerts since 2003.  Tom has since become the first full-time Director of Music for Wakefield Cathedral. His last engagement as Consort's Director was at the Christmas carol concert on the 9th December 2015. He is succeeded by Sachin Gunga M.A. (Cantab) M.Mus. A.R.C.O. who is the current Assistant Director of Music at Wakefield Cathedral and has also accompanied Consort at their recent concerts.

 The first engagement under Sachin was to sing the choral services in Wakefield Cathedral on Sunday 14th February 2016, deputising for the Cathedral Choir .
