A huge thank you to all those who work so hard to make the church look wonderful, not just at Christmas but throughout the year!
Following the successes of Music for All in August and Broomdasher in October, we’re now looking forward to a concert for All Saints and Remembrance on Saturday 20th November 2021. This will be the first performance for newly-formed chamber choir Refugium!
Refugium is a brand new chamber choir formed in the wake of lockdown. The impact of the pandemic on the Arts is well known – not only in terms of the financial impact on musicians, singer, directors, actors and theatre staff but also in terms of the great benefits that singing and performing bring to friendship, mental health and wellbeing. Refugium’s various members had sung together in several different acclaimed choirs in Herefordshire, Cardiff and beyond and, as soon as it was possible to meet again, some sessions in Bosbury Church were organised. The choir has a mutual appreciation not only for singing, but also coffee, cake, cats, curry and cricket! This is the choir’s first concert, but we hope to continue. If you would like to be kept informed of future events please contact Esther Kay on email@example.com or 01531 670634.
We are very fortunate in Bosbury church to have the benefit of the Grade 2 listed Speechly and Ingram organ with an unusually extensive palette of sounds which you will hear in the programme tonight. This historic instrument is in need of some refurbishment to save it for future generations, and details of an appeal will be made known shortly.
Tickets available from Esther Kay (01531 670634) or Suanna Rosier (01531 640444)
Just one week to go until “The Country Diary in Song” by Broomdasher! Described as a “fabulous musical celebration”, a “superb evocation of bygone rural England” and “exactly what traditional folk music should be like”, Broomdasher are a five piece acapella folk group from London.
“The Country Diary in Song” is a folk musical which celebrates the 150th birthday of Edith Holden’s The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady.
Broomdasher intertwine Edith’s beautiful descriptions with songs collected by Cecil Sharp and Ralph Vaughan Williams at the same time she was writing her diary,.to recreate a much-loved bygone era.
Please do join us this Sunday (10th October) for our Morning Praise service, at which we will be dedicating Holy Trinity Bosbury as an Eco Church!
What is Eco Church? It is a project which encourages churches to consider how they are caring for God’s Earth through their worship and teaching, management of church buildings and land, community and global engagement and lifestyle.
The Church can gain points in these categories towards a Bronze, Silver or Gold award and you can help too! More information will be given at the service, and shared on our website and Facebook in the coming weeks and months.
