“Come and Sing” is RSCM Waikato Branch’s invitation to members, friends and supporters for attendance at the forthcoming Tribute to Shirley Murray and RSCM Waikato Branch AGM. It is to be held 2.00pm Sunday 26 July 2020 at St Matthew’s Church, Morrinsville starting with the tribute to Shirley Murray. This will be followed in the Church Hall (The Hub) by AGM business and Branch plans for the future.
Chairman Dave Brookes will lead the tribute from the Johannus digital organ and those gathered are encouraged to sing some of her hymns set to traditional tunes. Colleague David Dyer from the digital keyboard will lead other Shirley Murray hymns with modern tunes set by NZ composers including Colin Gibson, Julian Bray, Douglas Mews and more.
Peter Maxwell will serve as MC adding interesting information about Shirley, words of her hymns, and the composers of the tunes. They were published world-wide and particularly in such iconic books as Alelluia Aotearoa, Hope Is Our Song.
