Festival Songs of Praise
Sun 3 July, 18:30


We begin our Festival celebration of Ralph Vaughan Williams – the giant of English music, born 150 years ago this year – with this joyous ecumenical service. Turn up in good voice to join in singing some of his best-loved hymns, including “Come down, O Love Divine” and “For all the Saints”, along with others composed by his teachers and pupils. This wonderful showcase of familiar English Church Music will be complimented by a selection of Anthems presented by the Pennine Singers.

Retiring collection (no ticket required)

Venue: St. Chads Church

Our music for this hour-long celebration will be:

All people that on earth do dwell
I heard the voice of Jesus say
Vaughan Williams Let all the World in every corner sing
Dear Lord and Father of Mankind
For all the Saints
Vaughan Williams O taste and see
Come Down, O Love Divine
Stanford Beati quorum via
All my Hope on God is Founded
O Praise ye the Lord!
