Prof Peter Godfrey Memorial Service Auckland

You are invited to a special memorial event in honour of the late Professor Peter Godfrey.

This event will be held on Sunday 25th February 2018, and will take the form of a service of Choral Evensong (5pm), followed by a multi-choir concert (7,30pm), both to be held in Holy Trinity Cathedral, Parnell.

I write with a general invitation (from Anita Banbury) to those interested in participating in the service and/or concert:
Dear Choristers,
On 25 February 2018 the extraordinary life of Peter Godfrey will be celebrated and commemorated with a service of Evensong and a concert in Holy Trinity Cathedral.

Options for participation (either or both):

You could take part in the massed choir singing Evensong, this group will sing the introit, anthems, Nunc Dimittis and hymns, and will be rehearsing from 3.20 – 4.40 on February 25.
Scores and rehearsal: You would be required to print off your own copies and study them; details for an internet repository for this will be provided in due course.
To register for this option, please write either to Cathryn Wyllie or to Simon Harvey Failure to register [early] will lead to there being inadequate seating.
You could sing in the massed choir in the concert, repertoire to be advised, and for which you will also need to print off and study the music (as above). This group will rehearse from 1.30 – 3pm on Sunday February 25. Registrations to Cathryn or Simon please for this event are similarly vital.

If you wish to participate as a chorister [in either or both], please respond by 13th February 2018.

Best wishes to you all,
David Finlay
RSCM (Auckland) committee member
