In ordinary times, our Choir would meet to rehearse on a Thursday evening. Unfortunately, because of the Coronavirus situation, they are unable to meet and rehearse at the moment, but we have been working to find ways for them to carry on singing. Shaun, our Choirmaster, has been arranging a number of solos, duets and quartets which can be learnt at home and then sung from the Choir-stalls, with singers placed at an acceptable distance from others.
Since the beginning of the Coronavirus situation, the Royal School of Church Music has been encouraging people to join them in singing their Hymn for the Day, which is updated daily Monday to Saturday usually in the early afternoon.
Today’s hymn ‘Take this moment, sign and space’ is a prayer for God to take, use and transform what we bring to him, both good and bad. Recorded remotely by the Choral Scholars of St Martin-in-the-Fields.
