Ephiphany Service, St Mary-le-Bow

Wednesday 22 January 2020

The great tradition of the Salopian Club Epiphany Service continues

On Wednesday 15th January a choir boasting some of the finest Salopian voices assembled at St Mary-le-Bow Church in Cheapside for a mere hour’s rehearsal and then proceeded to sing with outstanding quality a number of Epiphany carols, including the world premiere of Richard Eteson’s (G 89-93) beautifully composed Holy Innocents. The service was again led by the Rev Gavin Williams (Staff 92-02) and also featured readings performed by Salopians of every age.

Many of the appreciative congregation gathered to renew friendships at the Paternoster Bar after the service. Particular thanks are due to Peter Fanning (Staff 81-12), Richard Eteson (G 89-93) and Joe Bell  (Rb 10-15) for assembling the choir with admirable patience and to Patrick Craig (Ch 82-87) for directing it with his usual flair.
