‘From Vince Cross’
Thank you to everyone who sang, made tea, read lessons, turned on microphones, or simply was part of the congregation at the Choral Evensongs in Welland Foss benefice last week. On Thursday we hosted talented young musicians from Uppingham School under the direction of Andrew Kennedy, prior to their summer tour to Venice. And on Saturday we celebrated the festival of the birth of John the Baptist and the life of the great English composer William Byrd, joining together singers from Uppingham Parish Church, our own benefice and St. Peter’s Weston Favell, Northampton. Thanks are due to John and Jan Wardle for directing the latter event. Both happy occasions took place at St. Peter’s in Barrowden.
Singing is good for both the body and the soul so if you missed out on these occasions and would like to be involved in future music-making around the benefice, please contact Vince Cross at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone on 07971 804583.
