Cathedral Choir to Sing at St Peter’s
On Sunday 2nd July at 6pm
Leicester Cathedral Choir will sing at St. Peter’s Church, Church Langton, for a full Choral Evensong to mark the Festival of St. Petertide.
It may not be common knowledge, that Leicester Cathedral has been closed since January 2022 for major restoration. During this time, the Cathedral Choir have been invited to sing at churches around the Diocese and beyond in an initiative called, ‘Together with Leicester Cathedral’.
Everyone welcome to join us
Maxine Johnson invited them to attend to mark the occasion of our Patronal Festival for St Peter. Everyone is welcome to join us for what we know will be a wonderful occasion.
St. Peter’s church is well known for its fabulous acoustics and of course its musical heritage.
We have no record if or when the Cathedral Choir have performed at St. Peter’s before. This appearance could well be a first as the Cathedral Choir is relatively new. St Martin’s in Leicester was chosen as Leicester Cathedral when the Diocese was re-established in 1927.
The service will be lead by Canon Philip Norwood, a longtime friend of our local churches. Canon Philip has been part of our spiritual life, preaching and leading worship over the years at Church, Tur and more recently Thorpe Langton.
We will also be holding a flower festival the same weekend. The PCC wants the church to look at its best for the occasion and believe that filling the building with flowers will make it look spectacular.
If you wish to help with the flower arranging, please contact Sue Atton 01858 545427. Read more about the ‘Together with Leicester’ initiative here on leicestercathedral.org/together-with-leicester-cathedral/
