Heart and Voice Uniting

Monday May 14 2018

The choral scholars and director of music at St Martin-in-the-Fields Church in London are to perform at an Edinburgh event discussing the use of music in mission next month.

‘Heart and Voice Uniting’, a mixture of performance, discussion and worship, will take place at Greenbank Parish Church on June 12.

It will open with the Choral Scholars of St Martin-in-the-Fields performing ‘Great Sacred Music’, a 35-minute sequence exploring, through song and readings, the great classical music of our religious heritage.

Following the performance there will be a series of discussions on using music and mission. Among the contributors are Sam Wells and Andrew Earis, vicar and director of music respectively at St Martin-in-the-Fields; Martin Ritchie, minister of Greenbank Parish Church and organiser of the SPARK Festival of Worship and the Arts at Greyfriars Kirk in 2015; and Richard Frazer, minister of Greyfriars.

Finally at 6pm the day will conclude with 'Sing Joyfully’, a concert with the Choral Scholars.

The day is a HeartEdge Churches and Culture Event. HeartEdge is an ecumenical network of churches and organisations, initiated by St Martin-in-the-Fields, of churches working ‘at the heart of culture, community and commerce’.

‘Heart and Voice Uniting’ is a free event, but you can register at Eventbrite.
