Services for the Feast of the Transfiguration

Today is the Feast of the Transfiguration and at St Stephen Walbrook we will celebrate at our 12.45pm lunchtime Eucharist (where we will reflect on mountain-top experiences) and at a 6.00pm Festal Evensong (where in the reflection we will encourage our welcome of mystery). The setting for Choral Evensong, sung by the St Stephen Walbrook Choir, will be Stanford in Bb and the anthem will be 'Jubilate Deo' by Benjamin Britten. This service will be followed by a Garden Party at which wine and snacks will be served and you are encouraged to bring guests with you (39 Walbrook, London EC4N 8BN).

The choir that sings every Thursday for Eucharist at St Stephen Walbrook is a consort of four professional singers led by Choir Director, Emma Corke. They sing an unaccompanied mass setting, generally of the seventeenth century, and a motet (as well as a congregational hymn). Emma Corke joined the choir of St Stephen's in 1997, becoming Choir Director in 2002. She has also sung with the Oratory Choir and the BBC Singers. Our organist, Joe Sentance has been associated with St Stephen Walbrook since 1987 as well as having been Master of Music at the Chapels Royal, H.M.Tower of London and Director of Music at Sherborne Abbey.
