Monarchy and Jubilee
5th June 2012
 

   

Whilst our own primary celebrations of this year of Jubilee took place away from the Bank Holiday weekend back on 5 and 6 February, the anniversary of the Accession, the national celebrations over the past few days have touched us directly, too. Here at All Saints at Noon on Sunday the County Service of the Jubilee took place – it had been planned to take place outside, but the pouring rain led us inside. The GUS band accompanied us in

Jerusalem and The National Anthem, and Walton’s Crown Imperial and Orb and Sceptre were given impressive renderings on our organs. Earlier in the week we marked Oak Apple Day with the wreathing of the statue of King Charles on our Portico at Noon on Tuesday 29 May, followed by Holy Communion according to the Book of Common Prayer led by the All Saints’ Singers.
 

   

     

Two former Directors of Music here at All Saints took to the stage for the national events surrounding the Jubilee. On Sunday night the popular BBC 1 television show Songs of Praise came from the Chapel of the Royal Naval College, Greenwich, where Richard Tanner is currently Director of Music. He conducted the hymns with aplomb. Today, the Jubilee Service at St Paul’s Cathedral was accompanied by Simon Johnson, who also provided a stirring arrangement of Guide me, O thou great redeemer for the service. At the service The General Thanksgiving from the 1662 Book of Common Prayer was read; this Thanksgiving was composed by Edward Reynolds who was at the time Bishop of Norwich, but who had been Vicar here at All Saints.
