Thanksgiving Evensong for Rev. Andrew Walters - David Barclay and Michael Hart have chosen the music for the “Thanksgiving Evensong” and as usual, members of the Society are welcome to join the choir. We do not need to know numbers or what voice they are.

The music is:-
Thou knowest Lord – Purcell
Processional hymn – Ye holy angels bright
Introit – Jerusalem on high – Ouseley
Responses – Ayleward
Psalm – 91
Canticles – Brewer in D
Anthem – I saw the Lord – Stainer
Final hymn – Now thank we all our God John
Stainer wrote the anthem for double choir aged 18 while still organist of St Michael’s.

7.30/7.45pm SMCS Annual Reunion Dinner at Cadmore Lodge Guest Speaker – Gareth Stainer – Great Grandson of Sir John Stainer

*Please note, the photograph used to be taken after Evensong, however, not everyone was able to attend and the light is rapidly fading by 7pm at this time of year. Please can we give 2.45pm a go, just before Choir Practice – it might be a little less formal (cricket whites and casuals!) but we hope it will be more inclusive.
