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.
On Saturday August 14th Bosbury Church was alive with light and music as we celebrated the easing of COVID 19 restrictions with a Music for All concert “for the Village and Friends by the Village and Friends”. This was our first opportunity for over a year to gather and listen to a selection of live music and we weren’t quite sure how it would be. However we needn’t have worried!
A warmly appreciative audience enjoyed an eclectic programme featuring solos, duets, trios and Bosbury Church Choir, with music for flutes, clarinets, saxophone, trumpet, tenor horn, organ and piano and singing, as well as Chinese poems accompanied by flute. The age of performers ranged from 11 years to 70 plus, and featured several families – the Bucks, the Prices and the Kay/McKays – and Roger Allen’s sterling work as organist and accompanist. Thank you very much to all who took part. We hope this will now return to being an annual event.
The social side of these occasions is equally important and we enjoyed the legendary Bosbury nibbles provided by Liz Clutterbuck and Alison Young, while catching up with friends and neighbours. In fact the interval threatened to outlast the music until the audience were gently returned to their seats!
We also benefited from the beautiful flower arrangements in place for the weddings that had just taken place in church, which really added to the sense of occasion.
Thanks also to visitor Margaret Beare and her husband from Hereford who kindly shared these photographs.
We look forward to our next musical event
“The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady in Song”
presented by Broomdasher at 7pm on Saturday October 16th.
