Evensong for the start of Lent
Join the Parish Choir as they lead worship following the traditional form of Choral Evensong to mark the start of the penitent season of Lent.
Choral Evensong is a peace-inducing service in which the ‘song’ of voices sounding together in harmony is heard at the ‘even’ point between the active day and restful night, allowing listeners time for restful contemplation. Choral evensong is a beautiful tradition that can give respite and inspiration during our busy modern lives. Do please make time to come and join us, a retiring collection will be taken.
Christ Church at 18.00 on Sunday 10 March 2019.
Faure Requiem is to be sung by the Parish Choir at 18.00 on Sunday 14 April. Lasting approximately 40 minutes, this beautiful choral work, composed around 1887, gives a sense of the eternal rest. Fauré wrote of the work, “Everything I managed to entertain by way of religious illusion I put into my Requiem, which moreover is dominated from beginning to end by a very human feeling of faith in eternal rest”. A great opportunity to “bring a friend to church” or simply come and share the beauty of the music God inspires. A retiring collection will be taken.
