Find out more about Sir Hubert Parry’s best-known work “I Was Glad”, composed for the coronation of King Edward VII and performed in full at the Royal Wedding in 2011. BBC Radio 4’s ‘Tales from the Stave’ explores the history and genesis of this piece, to be performed next year by Wherwell Singers.
Our local CHurch, St Peter & Holy Cross in Wherwell, has been shrouded in scaffolding for months as works progress to fix the roof.
It is intended to re-open the church by Christmas 2011, with a rededication service to take place in the Spring to mark completion of the renovation.
The Wherwell Singers will be singing at the Rededication Service and hope to include “I Was Glad” with the help of the organ and trumpets: not to be missed!
The Rededication is on April 21 2012, watch this space for more information.
