Letter from America - 2

(from our own correspondent)

After yesterday's day off, #NYC2017 was back in full swing this morning, with the choir rehearsing for tomorrow's services at St Thomas' Fifth Avenue. We'll be singing Eucharist at 11am (4pm UK time) and Evensong at 4pm (9pm UK time); music will include 'The Lord is My Light', an anthem commissioned by the choir and written by Nicholas O'Neill.

The opportunity to sing at St Thomas' is a great privilege for the choir. Though its status is technically that of a parish church, its choral tradition ranks alongside that of leading cathedrals. The late John Scott, former Director of Music at St Paul's, directed the choir at St Thomas' from 2004 until his tragic death in 2015.

Both tomorrow's services will be webcast live and on-demand at www.saintthomaschurch.org so please do listen in!
