Music at Great Meeting
Music has always been important to the ministry and congregation at Great Meeting and musical contributions to our services are actively encouraged. In addition to the regular playing of our organists, over the past year we have had piano, flute, and vocal performances from members of our congregation.
We also have an informal group, The Great Meeting Singers, who meet occasionally to sing at services on special Sundays. We recently performed Mozart’s Ave Verum for Remembrance Sunday.
In addition, we are always keen to present social evenings and concerts and these have included supper cabarets, 1940s singing and even a comedy performance by Annie and Fannie, Cinderella’s ugly sisters!
Our musical facilitator, David Kent, is also a composer and with Rev Sarah Tinker (see photo below) recently won the Vincent Silliman prize in the US for their worship song The Light of the Spirit. Click red icon above right to stop background music then click image far right to listen.
David also has a new song, Field of Stars, with words and illustration by Lyanne Mitchell. Click red icon above right to stop background music then click image below left to listen to Field of Stars.
You can always restart the background music by clicking the red icon.
And of course, the whole congregation joins in the singing during our Sunday services. One service was broadcast on UNI-TV. An edited version of the broadcast can be viewed here (remember to PAUSE the background music by clicking the PAUSE button top right of your screen).
