Diocesan Choral Festival

Message from Stephen Grahl

Dear Diocesan Choral Festival Singers, I very much enjoyed today’s choral festival. As ever, your energy and commitment resulted in a most enjoyable service, and spoke of your ongoing ministry of music. My grateful thanks to the members of the working group, who have once again been tireless in their preparation and execution of the festival day. I would also like to extend warm thanks to those who directed rehearsals in their parishes, and to the conductors of the area rehearsals. Without this essential work, the festival could not run. It was great to be able to sing Lee Dunleavy’s responses, and I am always impressed by the way in which we tackle a wide variety of music with such aplomb. I am very much looking forward to seeing you next year: please save Saturday 13th October in your diary.
