Following the success of his fundraising CD of 60s rock hits, the Bishop of Lynn is back and showing off his versatility in a classical concert at Heacham Church.
The Rt Rev Jonathan Meyrick has once again showed his broad taste in music by agreeing to sing the part of Pilate in Lenten Cantata, Olivet to Calvary.
Adrian Flower, organist and organiser, said: “We haven’t got a vicar at the moment so we have had a lot of visiting clergies. We had heard the Bishop’s CD and thought he’s quite a good sport so we thought we’d ask him to be in the concert.”
The free concert will take place at 7pm on Saturday, April 12, and will feature singers from the 24 churches across the Heacham and Rising Deanery, from Castle Rising to Burnham Deepdale, and stretching inland as far as Hillington and Stanhoe.
They will also be joined by other choral groups and churches.
Rehearsals will be held at St Edmund’s in Hunstanton tomorrow, with the dress rehearsal due to take place in Heacham at 7pm on Friday, April 11.
Anyone who would like to join the choir should attend these rehearsals.
Bishop Jonathan said: “I have always been involved in performance on an amateur basis, as are most of the soloists and choir – so it will be a great community musical celebration of Passiontide to which everyone, both singers and congregation, are most welcome.”
More details and scores to borrow are now available from Ann Fletcher on 01485 572467.
A retiring collection for the Diocese Lent Appeal will be held at the concert.
