The Trinity Chamber Singers will sing daily services at Wells Cathedral in England the week of July 16-22. The choir will sing evensong at 5:15 p.m. each day Monday through Saturday, and will sing three full services on Sunday, July 22 (Choral Eucharist, Matins and Evensong). The chance to sing daily services in this historic and beautiful English Cathedral is an honor and a very special musical opportunity for the Chamber Singers, says Todd Wilson, Trinity’s director of music and worship. “The group looks forward to representing Trinity Cathedral on the other side of ‘the pond’ as we visit our Anglican roots,” he adds.
Wilson will direct the Chamber Singers while Elizabeth Lenti, Trinity’s associate for music and worship, serves as organist. A highlight of the week is the July 19 evensong. Well-known English composer and conductor, Grayston Ives, will conduct while the group performs music he’s written. Learn more about Wells Cathedral at www.wellscathedral.org.uk.
The Medieval Feasts on Jan. 20 and 21 were both wonderfully successful and enjoyable nights. The Cathedral nave was once again transformed into a raucous banqueting hall, with more than 300 costumed guests enjoying superb food and drink as we celebrated Geoffrey Chaucer’s birthday. Entertainment included skits, singing, jousting, juggling, fortune-telling and more. The evening finished with the ceremonial kissing of the boar’s head, accompanied by “special” music on the mighty Flentrop organ! A great time was had by all, in addition to raising funds for Music and Art at Trinity. Special thanks to master planners Sally Winter and Cathy Rezos, and to master chefs Steve Louzos, Jon Logan and Demetrious Rezos (along with many others who contributed in so many ways).
