And next for our 150th: James MacMillan
I told you God is good to us; James MacMillan in between writing major pieces for concert hall, opera house and the occasional Papal visit and writing a little something for the parish choir he runs is coming to speak here next Friday evening. I have a seat reserved, everyone else is on a first come, first seated basis, our Church isn't huge. Interestingly there seems to be a lot of interest in Brighton in his talk not just from Church choir people but from the other parts of the artistic community too.
It is our venture into the Court of the Gentiles.
Everyone knows this, it is glorious:
but I love this:
and this piece written in honour of Our Lady for Fr Laurence Lew's ordination is delightful
but apart from him once telling me he looked at my blog, this is really the reason for inviting him: not so music but silence.
