In honour of the Diamond Jubilee, there will be a special “Songs of Praise” service on Sunday evening at 5pm at All Saints Church Fulham.
All Saints Fulham Choir and guest musicians will be conducted by Martin Neary, Organist Emeritus of All Saints Fulham and former Organist and Master of Choristers at Westminster Abbey and Winchester Cathedral, for several of the anthems during the service.
Sunday’s service will include many of the anthems from that coronation service:
Zadok the Priest – Handel
Conforare – George Dyson
Behold O God our Defender – Herbert Howells
I was Glad – CHH Parry
