Hymnathon – update

We’re getting close to March 9th!

If we haven’t told you already on 9th March , Andrew Cooper (Director of Music) will attempt to play every verse, of every hymn from the New English Hymnal. He estimates that all 500 hymns will take around 18 hours to complete and will involve playing nearly a million notes.

This superhuman musical effort is to provide funds for the All Saints’ musical outreach project for local school children. The children will have the opportunity to join a community choir with training being given by Michael Stevenson (former Head of Music of King’s College School) culminating in a school’s service in June.

Andrew will start his “hymnathon” at 06.00 and hopes to complete it by 20.00. The church will be open to the public throughout and all are welcome to come and listen.
