Saturday Concert Series: The Proms at Holy Sepulchre London

The BBC Singers bring the Proms to London’s ‘Musicians’ Church’ for a concert of English choral pieces spanning the 20th and 21st centuries.

The BBC Singers and Chief Conductor Sofi Jeannin bring the Proms to the ‘Musicians’ Church’, Holy Sepulchre London where Proms founder-conductor Henry Wood first learnt the organ and was later laid to rest.

This varied conspectus of 20th-century English choral music opens with the setting of lines by the then Poet Laureate, John Masefield, that Walton composed for the unveiling of the church’s Henry Wood memorial window in 1946, and is brought up to date with a new commission by Joanna Lee, At this man’s hand, setting the verse by Masefield that is inscribed on the window itself.

There will be no interval

Approx. end time: 16:30

Tickets for this event will be available from 9.00am on Friday 14 June. Please see https://www.bbc.co.uk/events/edbcd4 for more details. Tickets will not be available via the church.

This is a day-long retreat here at Holy Sepulchre based around the music of Haydn’s choral masterpiece, The Creation. This will be a chance to step back from the busyness of everyday London life to look at what it means to be made in the image of God and how this impacts on our relationship with God, with ourselves and with others. It promises to be a day of spiritual refreshment, space, silence and also wonderful music!* The retreat day will be lead by Peter, Director of Music at HSL. Light refreshments will be provided. Tea and coffee from 10am and then we will start at 10.30am.

Selah Christian Music Festival

In its role as the National Musicians Church, Holy Sepulchre London is committed to promoting and developing music that has been written to worship and glorify the God of the Bible. As a centre for Christian music, Holy Sepulchre London plans to promote performances of music written at any time in history by any culture world-wide to worship, glorify or direct people towards God. 

In its inaugural Selah Festival on 2 and 3 November, Holy Sepulchre London is featuring the role of Jazz and its spiritual foundations and connection with people who follow Jesus. Two brilliant groups will be performing. 

Friday 2 November“The Roots of Jazz” ensemble

featuring JON HEERING, SARAH ELLEN HUGHES, ANDRE 'SAXMAN' BROWN, MELVIN REEVES, PHIL WAIN, and J FASHOLE-LUKE

Roots of Jazz will trace the spiritual history of Jazz through many of the great Jazz standards. 

Saturday 3 November - THE EIGHT WORDS: A jazz suite based on the eight sayings of Jesus in St John’s Passion

featuring TIM BONIFACE (saxophones) 

with PHIL MERRIMAN (piano), ED BABAR (bass), JON ORMSTON (drums),

Jazz multi-instrumentalist and composer Tim Boniface (saxophones) and an explosively talented rhythm section (Phil Merriman, Ed Baber and Jon Ormston) will perform Tim's original instrumental jazz suite, released on CD on to critical acclaim in 2016. 

Deeply effective melodies combine with rich harmonic and rhythmic canvas to offer a piece firmly rooted in the jazz tradition that offers a fresh and inspiring way to consider the texts on which it is based. A must-hear.

“A quartet who play throughout with invention and commitment.” The Jazz Journal

Includes an exquisite hymn of peace…a gorgeous central hymn, akin to a pleading spiritual, briefly and movingly reprised to form a warm, promising and optimistic conclusion. Inspired and reassuring.” The Church Times

Beautifully played and conceived. The Eight Words is the work of a fine composer musician who also happens to be ordained. The work is ambitious, thoughtful and accessible, yes. And it displays a vintage jazz sensibility, yes. But it is also deeply devotional, too, which makes the music all the more disarming and powerful.” Paul Northup, Creative Director, Greenbelt

A wonderfully imaginative work” Very Rev’d Michael Sadgrove, Author

“Ekes out a brilliantly original, reflective space” Rev’d Canon Chris Chivers, Principal, Westcott House, Cambridge
