Music to End Sunday, 13 June 2021

Hello, everyone. The theme of rest and sleep runs through our music this evening. The Italian late baroque composer Domenico Scarlatti wrote nearly six hundred sonatas for keyboard.

Evening Prayer Friday, 11 June 2021

Good evening, everyone. Welcome to Friday evening’s prayers. Let’s start tonight with a hymn. I think the words of this one say it all, as they focus our minds on those things which are really important to us, but which we sometimes take for granted. ‘Think of a world without any flowers.’ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eDfMFOuYbLs Haven’t we been...
