The Choir of Queens’ College Cambridge University 20th July 2018

The Choir of the Chapel of Queens’ College Cambridge will be performing at St Paul’s on Friday 20th July 2018 at 20.30 hrs.  Admission free.

Queens’ College Choir

Queens’ College Choir is one of the leading mixed-voice choirs in Cambridge. While twentieth-century music forms the core of the choir’s repertoire, the choir increasingly performs Baroque and contemporary music, reflecting the specialisms of the Director of Music. The choir is regularly joined by a group of student instrumentalists, the Queens’ Chapel Players, enabling the liturgical performance of concerted music. The Choir’s CD recordings have attracted widespread critical acclaim. Their most recent disc, ‘For the Wings of a Dove: Music of Supplication and Hope’, is based on settings of the psalms and includes Mendelssohn’s famous setting of Psalm 51, ‘Hear my prayer’. In recent years the Choir has performed in Hong Kong, Switzerland, France, Germany, Southern Italy, Belgium, Hungary and the USA.

St Paul’s Spring Bazaar

Saturday 26th May dawned bright and fair. Despite it being a holiday weekend we were hoping for a good attendance at the Bazaar.

The stallholders arrived early to set out their goods, and the bunting and Union Jacks were hung up around the perimeter of the Church to add a colourful flavour to the proceedings and to advertise this particularly “British” occasion.

By 11.00 people were queuing up at the gate to get in.  Fr Leonard rang the bell and the gate was opened!  There was an immediate rush to the Jewellery Stall where the three Ladies had their hands full keeping up with the sales.  The Book Stall also did brisk business and soon all the other stalls were busy selling.

Finnish Guys

Finnish Duo enhance our Sunday Worship

On the morning before the last concert of our very successful 15th Spring Organ Series, we were delighted to welcome Hannu Niemelä, baritone, accompanied by Pauli Pietiläinen on the Organ, who sung the  beautiful ‘Finnish prayer’ by Taneli Kuusisto, at the end of our morning worship.   Roughly translated, the Finnish Prayer means:  “Bless and preserve us by your Hand. Lead us on the right way, give us strength. You have  all the Power and Spirit.”

The congregation sat spellbound as Hannu’s beautiful voice filled the church to the rafters and at the end they received a well-deserved round of applause.

We are very grateful to the Finnish Institute for their support for our final concert of the Series, and we hope that all visitors to our Website will keep a look out next year for details of our 16th Spring Organ Series.
