Gilbert & Sullivan service

In normal circumstances we would have welcomed visitors to the International Gilbert & Sullivan Festival at our services today.  The festival, held in Harrogate since 2014, had to be cancelled this year as a result of COVID-19.  Arthur Sullivan was a boy chorister at the Chapel Royal and an organist at two London churches.  He wrote several hymn tunes, anthems and sacred part songs.  Today hymns such as It came upon a midnight clear; the anthem The Lost Chord; and Sullivan's setting of Jubilate in D will be sung at our 11:00 am Matins service.
