Choral Evensong on an island….

Story posted on

A service of Choral Evensong will be held on Sunday 18th August in the church of St Mary the Virgin, Orchardleigh BA11 2PH at 6.00pm. The service will be sung by members of the parish.

The service will include music by Jean Titelouze, Gilbert Mills and Richard Terry and will celebrate the patronal festival of the church as it is dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary who is remembered in the church calendar a few days earlier.

The service will end with the Giovanni Pescetti organ sonata played by the director of music, David King.

The retiring collection will be given to ‘FairFrome’.

The Church of St Mary dates back to the 14th century and sits on a moated island adjacent to the lake on the Orchardleigh estate and due to its location has no electricity and all services are illuminated by candlelight and the organ is pumped by hand!
