Holy Week begins on Palm Sunday on the 25th of March and ends with the festivities of Easter Day on the 1st of April.
Along with Christmas, St Giles’ Choir are at their busiest during this period, singing a range of music to accompany the Easter story. As well as our Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday 10 am services, the choir will be leading music on Maundy Thursday at 7.30pm and at our Good Friday Liturgy service at 2pm.
The Good Friday service is probably our most challenging musically, as the choir will be singing a 25 minute passion with soloists along with Farrant’s ‘Call to Remembrance’ as an introit.
After Easter we traditionally have a well-earned rest, but this time we’re going to be busy supporting ex-Morland camp choristers from across London on Saturday 7th April. The plan is to sing Vespers at St George’s Catholic Cathedral in Southwark. It will be a really special occasion – check out our Facebook Events page here for updates on this and other events.
