On Sunday afternoon, April 23rd, 32 BMS Members led the singing in the annual St. George’s Day Service in Blackburn Cathedral. Under the direction of our conductor Tom Newall and accompanied by Joy Fielding, the choir also sang John Rutter’s ‘For the beauty of the earth’ and Karl Jenkins’ ‘Benedictus’ from The Armed Man.
The service, which was attended by the Mayor and Mayoress of Blackburn with Darwen, The Blackburn and East Lancashire branch of the Royal Society of St George and Blackburn Scout Groups, was conducted by the new Dean of Blackburn, The Very Reverend Peter Howell-Jones. Samuel Hudson accompanied the congregational singing on the organ and the Salvation Army Band also performed.
BMS are glad to support such an important event in the town’s calendar.
