Choral Pilgrimage of England - January 30 to February 8, 2020
You are invited to join the Christ and Grace, Petersburg, for a Choral Pilgrimage to England, January 30 to February 8, 2020, led by the Rev Robin Teasley, William Owen, and Matthew Little. A Choral Pilgrimage is a rich musical and spiritual journey where pilgrims seek an encounter with the Holy in the glory of choral music and the spiritual sites of our Anglican heritage. We will be exploring some of these historic and sacred sites each day as we worship daily at Evensongs and sung Eucharists in some of England's most beautiful cathedrals and collegiate chapels. We will hear the resident world-famous choirs (not guest or touring choirs) sing in their home settings. The Organists and Music Directors will frequently join us for a meal to tell us more about their work, and we will have special reserved seating in the Quires. William Owen has led six of these journeys at his former parish, Christ Church Christiana Hundred in Wilmington, DE. For further information, please see our brochure or contact Christ and Grace at churchoffice@christandgrace.org.
