We are very pleased that the Friends Festival Service is able to go ahead. Due to current restrictions, there will be no congregational singing; however it will be a service of Choral Evensong with the usual musical elements sung by the choir and recorded in isolation, along with a live cantor.  The recordings will include the double-choir anthem ‘I was glad’ by Parry. As there are a limited number of places available due to Covid-19 restrictions, please can anyone wishing to attend advise Anne Jerman – email: jerman@12blagdon.eclipse.co.uk or tel: 01363 772865. The preacher is the Very Reverend Graham Smith, former Dean of Norwich Cathedral. Regrettably, there will be no reception afterwards.
