A message from Matthew Cooke – Director of Music at St. Mary’s, Petworth

Advent and Christmas singing at Petworth

Dear local singers,

I am emailing to invite you most cordially to join St Mary’s choir for the following two services: Saturday 26th November at 5 pm Advent Procession This is an innovation this year and will be a meaningful start to the season of Advent. The procession will only take place in a small portion of the service so please do not be deterred from joining us if the processing bit is an issue for you. Tuesday 20th December at 7 pm Carols by Candlelight Please note there WILL be some additional lighting in the chancel this year.

Ideally, full attendance is required at the evening rehearsals prior to these services: Thursday 24th November at 7 15 pm Tuesday 20th December at 5 pm (prior to the service at 7 pm, with tea in between) We will of course be rehearsing as normal on Thursday evenings at 7 15 pm between now and then and you are welcome to come along to any of these rehearsals that are convenient for you, in order to collect some music.

Please note there will be no Thursday evening choir practice on 27 October. Please could you let me know as soon as feasible whether you may be able to join us this year, even if it is only a ‘probably’ at this stage.

All good wishes, Matthew Cooke Director of Music St Mary’s Petworth

Anyone interested should email Matthew Cooke
