We have a very exciting programme of Christmas engagements and services coming up over the next few weeks, at which the choir will be singing music from the likes of Haydn, Lauridsen, Chilcott, Macmillan and Rutter.
Be sure to save these key dates in your diary now! We look forward to seeing you over the Christmas period. 🎄
As well as serving up a wonderful rendition of the Canterbury Mass and Gibbons ‘This is the record of John’ on Sunday morning, December 15th, the choir served up hot dogs and mince pies after the service. All in aid of choir funds and their tour to Cambridge next summer.
The parish choir had a great evening carolling in Victoria Square on Thursday, December 12th. Thanks to all the parents, especially to the fundraisers for organising it. We’re welcome back, according to the Security Officers.
Congratulations to Will Fox-Roberts on his appointment to Peterborough Cathedral as Counter-tenor lay clerk. Will takes up his new position in January, singing evensong 4 evenings per week and three services on a Sunday. We will miss him greatly, not just for his singing, but also his meticulous organising of culture night and his conducting during the summer months. The choir will be singing a concert in Peterborough cathedral next July and we hope he can join us for that. We wish you all the very best for this new beginning.
Come along to our table quiz on Friday, October 18th, a fund raiser for the choir tour to Cambridge next summer.
Derek and Margaret Boden recently celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary.
They are pictured here with their bridal party from the wedding when they met up for celebrations in London.
Congratulations Derek and Margaret and we all wish you many more happy years together.
Some of our parishioners are currently on Pilgrimage in Walsingham.
We pray for their time there and for safe travels.
We pray for +Alan who has today announced his intention to retire on health grounds. We have always found him to be a good friend to us at St George’s and we wish him well in his retirement.
