We were delighted to welcome Jonathan Macdonald, Chair-elect of the Cathedral Music Trust to Choral Evensong on 25 September to present our Church Choir Award which they have made with the Royal School of Church Music for our chorister bursary scheme. Many thanks! Music for the service included the anthem In our service by Tony Hewitt-Jones, written earlier this year to mark the Platinum Jubilee of Her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and now offered in grateful remembrance.

Music for Holy Week – The Lord is My Shepherd

The boys and men of Chingford Parish Church have recorded "The Lord is My Shepherd (Psalm 23)" by Howard Goodall. Famous as the theme to the BBC TV series The Vicar of Dibley, the solo is sung by James Shaw, the organist is Felix Pethue. Directed by Michael Emerson, and mixed and edited by Luke Kerr, the recording shows the depth of skill and heights of achievement of our parish musicians. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TesJwE21vpE
