Choral Scholar Sunday

On Sunday 28th April, our two Choral Scholars will take centre stage and sing solos at our services at All Saints Church Fulham.

Sinead O'Kelly, Soprano

Sinead O’Kelly, Soprano

At Sung Eucharist at 9.30am, our Soprano choral Scholar, Sinead O’Kelly will sing King David by Herbert Howells (1892–1983). The piece was completed in 1919 and dedicated to the tenor John Coates.

Howells was a student of some of the great English composers of the 20th century. At school he was a student of Herbert Brewer at Gloucester Cathedral; he later won a scholarship to the Royal College of Music where he studied under Charles Stanford, Charles Hubert Parry and Charles Wood. Howells wrote original music for orchestra, both sacred and secular choral pieces, and chamber music.

Elspeth Marrow, alto

At Choral Evensong, our alto Choral Scholar, Elspeth Marrow will sing the cantata Vergnügte Ruh by JS Bach (1685-1750).

The cantata was composed in 1726 while he was Director of Music for the city of Leipzig. In this capacity, he organised and composed music at the main churches in the city and taught pupils music in the local school.

Bach wrote cantatas for each Sunday in church calendar. Vergnügte Ruh or Delightful rest, beloved pleasure of the soul was written for the 6th Sunday after Trinity.
