The combined choirs of St. Peter’s have been gathering throughout the summer to prepare for their upcoming residencies at Westminster Abbey, St. Paul’s Cathedral, and St. Martin’s in the Fields. Their offerings of music and sung prayer at Evensongs in these historic venues mark their fourth residency over the past eleven years: in 2005, the choir was in residence at Canterbury Cathedral; in 2008, at Durham Cathedral; in 2012, at Christchurch in Oxford and at Chester Cathedral; and soon, in London. Each of these pilgrimages has included not just choir members but interested parishioners and friends of St. Peter’s, and each has resulted in heightened community awareness for St. Peter’s excellent music program, increased skill and commitment on the part of all choir members, and greater understanding of our worship traditions for all who attend. The group returns to St. Peter’s reinvigorated for ministry.
