Believing in Poetry

Believing in poetry - 2018 

A series of short talks and recitals on individual poets or poems to accompany the beauty of language and music in ‘cathedral style’ choral evensong according to the Book of Common Prayer at 6.30pm on the last Sunday of every month (excluding August when there is no service and November which will be the Advent Service). 

Come to be still, pray and meditate in a service lasting about an hour which expresses the best of the Anglican tradition, originating with Archbishop Thomas Cranmer and Tudor composers such as Thomas Tallis who was organist at this church.
