“The only worthwhile striving is after the highest ideals: If you aim for an easy target, your standard will inevitably decline, and no progress is ever made, except through real effort and real suffering.” - Servant of God Fra' Andrew Bertie                                                                                                                                                 "Work as if everything depends on you, pray as if everything depends on God" - Saint Ignatius of Loyola


The next concert in the Saint John's Concerts series, to be sung by the boys of Arnold House School Chapel Choir, under the direction of their Choirmaster Paul Swinden, will take place on Wednesday next, 24th November, at 7.30pm in the Conventual Church.

We are very please to renew our relationship with this local prep school, with which the Hospital has had very long association over many decades.

The programme will be as follows:
Richard Dering  -  O Bone Jesu
George Dyson  -  I Will Worship
Geoffrey Burgon  -  Nunc Dimittis
Ralph Vaughan-Williams  -  Antiphon from 5 Mystical Songs
Gabriel Faure  -  In Paradisum from Requiem
William S. Harris -  Behold, now, praise the Lord
Cecil Armstrong Gibbs  -  Beggar’s Song
Ronald Corp  -  God be in my Head
The choral works will be interspersed with two J S Bach organ solos played by Paul Swinden and Colin Stuart.
As with the other concerts, a donation will be requested at the door for the support of Saint John's Hospice.  We do encourage all our friends to support this most worthy cause.  Refreshments of wine, soft drink and snacks will be served in the interval.
