A big thank you is due to Rupert Gill for stepping in to lead the choir between 27th January and 17th February.

During his month at Christ Church, Rupert selected music which was both appropriate liturgically but also allowed us to perfect and tweak some of our ‘old favourites’ including pieces by Parry, Stanford and Brahms. Rupert’s calm style and engaging manner soon put everyone at ease and meant that despite being with us for just a few weeks, we were able to get to grips with the demanding unaccompanied music for the Ash Wednesday service.

We are delighted that Rupert found time in his busy conducting schedule to return to Christ Church and help us out while we were between Directors of Music. We hope to see him again in the future!
