Dear friends, colleagues, visitors
our series of Sunday Afternoon Recitals at St. Mary's is continuing: it will be my great pleasure to host Thornbury Clarinet Choir, led by Alison Whitfield, on Sunday 25th September! As usual, the concert starts at 4pm and is followed by tea and cakes.
Our organ refurbishment project is progressing fast, and with a little bit of luck the instrument will be back in action for the October concert (the deadline for completion is Remembrance weekend). At this place, I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for your support of the Sunday Afternoon Recitals, which has contributed significantly to the realisation of the project.
The November concert will be a slightly special one, as the fourth Sunday coincides with the beginning of advent. We have therefore decided not to have a concert at 4pm, but to invite you instead to our Advent Service of Light at 6pm, which for me personally is the musical climax of the church year. Do come along and hear our splendid choir singing at their best in this beautiful service!
