A reminder that there will be a Vestry meeting after the 09h15 service this Sunday to elect new church wardens and councilors for 2016. Please support this most important event.

The music for the service will include

Missa Brevis (Mátyás Seiber, 1925)
Offertory: Christ, who knows all his sheep (Charles Wood)
Communion motet: O sacrum convivium (Giovanni Croce)

Music at the Nine Fifteen Choral Eucharist:
The Canterbury Mass (Anthony Piccolo)
Offertory: Lord of the earth (Lennox Berkeley)
Communion :Jesu, dulcis memoria (attributed to Tomás Luis da Victoria)

This month the choir of St George's Parktown (Johannesburg) join us for Choral Evensong which features Restoration music by John Blow (Salvator mundi) and Henry Purcell (Evening Service in G/A minor and the famous 'Bell anthem' Rejoice in the Lord alway). The Preces and responses are by Richard Ayleward.

We also commemorate the inestimable contribution to church music made by the late Sir David Willcocks (1919-2015) with his arrangement of our final hymn 'The day thou gavest, Lord, is ended').
