Ascension Day 2012

The Choir take Ascension Day literally. For the 7am service they “ascend” up the winding steps to the top of the tower. The choir stands in a semi-circle around Jonathan, our Director of Music, and sing out to the heavens while the congregation listen from the bottom of the tower.

London looks stunning from up there – we see the red buses pootling down Putney High Street to the South; the vast greenery of the allotments in Bishop’s Park to the North; the unique arch of Wembley Stadium can be seen to the West; and we can even see as far as the skyscrapers of Canary Wharf to the East.

All Saints Fulham Church member Hugh Alford attended this year’s service and wrote about the experience on his blog.

Particularly like his description of the Choir and their “full throated rendering of Giuseppe Pitoni’s (1657-1743) ‘Cantate Domino’.”.
