This week we’re “building it back better” at St Mary’s by reinstating Choral Evensong (2nd and 4th Sunday of the month at 6pm). Come and join us in a service that our choir will be singing in Wells Cathedral in a couple of week’s time.
“Every man and woman in England has a birth-right. Walk into any cathedral [some parish churches and college chapels] at about tea time, … and you will hear the most exquisite music beautifully sung. In the streets outside people are scrambling to get to the shops before they close, unaware perhaps that, behind the decorative medieval facade, a religious event of the most timeless beauty is about to take place. Choral Evensong is part of our cultural heritage … something extremely precious, to be jealously guarded by those who sometimes need to be still, to think upon their divine creator, and to discover the immense capacities of the human soul. – Joanna Trollope (1996)
