Other Forthcoming Worship

The tenth annual Henley Choir Festival was held on Saturday 26 January in St Mary’s Church. Seven separate choirs participated. In the first half of the evening programme, they contributed 11 items. Their choice ranged from the well-known, like Bethlehem Down (Peter Warlock) and the 16th century anonymous setting of Rejoice in the Lord alway, to several pieces by living composers who included a Scot and two Welshmen, Peter Nardone, Karl Jenkins and Michael J Lewis. Lewis, born in Aberystwyth but working in USA, was composer of Heaven is my home, sung by the Choir of All Saints’ Church, conducted by David Butler, with soloists Rebecca Bell and James Stickings and organist Michael Howell.

The last three named featured in the second half of the programme when the combined choirs sang Part 1 and Hallellujah! from The Messiah (Handel). They were joined by Lucy Gibbs (alto) and Emlyn Williams (tenor), while the whole performance was under the direction of Frances Brewitt-Taylor. The nine previous Henley Choir Festivals raised £13,621 for charitable causes. This year, about £1,700 was contributed which benefited the work of Diabetes UK.
