The Renaissance Choral Evensong services at St Paul’s are organised by the Schola Cantorum Sancti Pauli, the Athens Centre for Early Music, and St Paul’s Anglican Church.

The choir Cappella Sancti Pauli, under the direction of Iason Marmaras, sing a series of Choral Evensong services that aim to revive the musical and liturgical practice at Cathedrals and Chapels during the Renaissance, but also the experience that musicians had of this music at those times, looking at the music as a functional part of the liturgy, rather than as a building-block for concerts.

St Paul’s marks Remembrance Sunday 100 years after the end of the First World War

Remembrance Sunday in Athens was marked by a service in St Paul’s, with HE The British Ambassador, Kate Smith, and many other Ambassadors and representatives of the Commonwealth present. H.E. read the gospel whilst her Defence Attache, Tim Ferns, read a lesson and the “ode of remembrance”.  A wreath of poppies was placed on the alter by Church Warden Nigel Daniels and at 11.00 hrs the entire congregation processed outside to witness Tim ringing the bell just as the bells were rung across the UK at the appointed hour.

 

Afterwards many people travelled down to the beautiful CWGC cemetery at Alimos,  where an international gathering attended by Ambassadors and representatives of many nations, faith leaders, schools and other organisations, sang hymns, and listened to readings.  It was also wonderful to have the choir of Byron College contributing to the ceremony at Alimos, singing two pieces specially composed for the occasion by their music teacher, Dimitri Orlov: a captivating and moving performance.

A New Harvest Perspective

Fr James

Being a September birthday, and hailing from a particularly damp corner of that northern European outpost called England, I have always had a particular affinity for Autumn; the season Keats described as one of ‘mists and mellow fruitfulness’. You can almost smell the leaf mould in that verse!

For me, in that context, Harvest has always been an autumnal festival and closely linked to falling leaves and burnished colours.

How would it be then, I wondered, to celebrate Harvest in a country where mist is apparently not a common weather event and where, even in mid-October, the sun and the mercury are still high (relatively speaking!)
