About the Event
St Martin's Church and the Royal School of Church Music (RSCM) invite experienced choral singers to come and sing a Choral Evensong that commemorates the anniversaries of William Byrd and Thomas Weelkes, who both died in 1623.
Distinguished choral conductor Paul Trepte (formerly Director of Music at Ely Cathedral) will guide the 'Come and Sing' Choir in music that would have been familiar to a Worcester congregation in the years leading up to the English Civil War.
See Eventbrite for full details and to book if you wish to join the Choir.
Refreshments at 5.10pm
Service starts at 6.00pm
Everyone is welcome
There is no need to book if you wish to join the congregation for the service at 6pm - a traditional cathedral-style Choral Evensong with congregational hymns and readings from the King James Bible.
FREE with donations invited towards the cost of the event and the work of the RSCM and St Martin’s Church.
