Choirs unite for joint Sheringham evensong
Choirs from Norwich and Sheringham came together for a joint Choral Evensong at St Peter’s in Sheringham earlier this month.
The service, on July 3, was led by vicar of Christ Church, Patrick Richmond, who also preached. The choirs, from Christ Church, Eaton and from St Peters itself, were led by St Peter’s Director of Music, Lys Morgan-Hart. The organist was Matt Wright, organist and choirmaster of Eaton Christ Church. Everyone was able to enjoy a delicious tea after the service.
Commenting on the event, Matt Wright said, “It was a great pleasure for us to be able to do this event with St Peter’s, Sheringham, COVID having caused it to be postponed. We particularly enjoyed the tea: although the Christ Church choir contingent was fairly small, our capacity for cake and scones is always large. Thanks to everyone involved”.
