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
On Sunday, 6 February, the 70th anniversary of the accession of Her Majesty to the throne, we celebrated with a special Evensong at the Parish Church. The special Accession responses were sung to a setting by Dr Francis Jackson, who died earlier this year, along with his setting in G of the canticles. Howard Goodall's setting of Psalm 23 was a fitting anthem for the occasion.
