This will be the first time I’ve attempted a blog – so I’m eager to learn more about how to do it properly!

My hope is that I can share thoughts and information about the Music at St Mary’s Church, Bury St Edmunds – as that is my job!

I shall try to inform, entertain (maybe), amuse (occasionally), but mainly let this be a vehicle for information for how (and sometimes why), we do what we do, as we seek to use our various talents to worship God in the magnificent setting of St Mary’s Church.

  1. It was a pleasure to have one of your choristers at St Oswald’s church, Ashbourne in the summer.

  2. Someone essentially help to make critically posts I
    might state. That is the first time I frequented your website
    page and thus far? I surprised with the analysis you made to make this actual post amazing.
    Magnificent task!

  3. Great reading! Rather like Corno Dolce in Organists’ Review. I can relate to most of these experiences you describe Adrian; one which sprang to mind was when visiting a little village church in Oxfordshire. During my playing of the final voluntary at their Carol service, I nearly jumped off the organ bench when surprised from behind with Mr Biggles-Boom Fortissimo shouting in my ear “Thank you SO much for coming, lovely music”.

    You don’t have to make it up do you?!

    Thanks for a very interesting read!

  4. Thanks Adrian, good work!
    I’d love to include your piece about alternative hymn tunes in my choir’s newsletter if I may?
