From the 22nd January to the 26th February our anthems during the 10am Eucharist will be taken from some of the best composers versions of the Jubilate including Walton, Chilcott, Britten, Gabrieli, Handel and Purcell. Based on Psalm 100, the Jubilate was part of the ancient Jewish Temple Liturgy and is part of the Book of Common Prayer’s Morning Prayer.
This Advent the anthems in our 10am Sunday Eucharist will come from Disney and DreamWorks. As well as telling many Christian stories, Disney and DreamWorks movies have, over the years, engaged with implicit Christian themes in more subtle ways, such as: to believe in yourself, to chase your dreams, and to have courage and be kind. Each week in Advent the choir will be singing a song from an animated film.
Today the Hyde Park Estate gathered together along with horse riders and enthusiasts from across London and the South of England for the annual Blessing of the Horses. Started by Ross Nye, one of the local muse stables, 49 years ago to bring together the London horse riding community and draw attention to the challenges in maintaining horse riding in central London.
