St. Pauls Churchroom Coffee Morning June 21st
Once again we had a beautiful sunny morning to meet friends, and enjoy coffee and a cake (or two). Thank you so much to all the people who made the delicious cakes, or contributed to the raffle prizes, and the bric a brac and plant stalls.
We made an excellent total of £125 to help with the upkeep of the church room.
There will be no coffee morning in July or August; the next will be in September. The date will be announced in the August edition of the Pew and on the village website at
Meanwhile, enjoy the sunshine, have a good summer.
ST PAUL’S CHURCH SUMMER CONCERT
WITH SOPRANO SARAH MINNS & PIANIST NICOLA ROSE.
St. Paul’s Church was filled to capacity with an audience full of expectation for St. Paul's Summer Concert with Soprano Sarah Minns and pianist Nicola Rose and they were definitely not disappointed.
The programme was a mixture of well-
The performance was spine tingling. Sarah's beautiful voice and Nicola's passionate
piano accompaniment made you feel in awe of the talent of these two girls, the music
created was breath taking.
Sarah sang faultlessly in Italian, French and German. She was able to tell the story of the piece through her voice, the intonation of light and shade, her facial expressions and the clear notes touching you to the very core.
Whether singing "The Laughing Song" from Die Fladermaus by Strauss, or Song to the Moon by Dvorak it felt like being at an international concert and not in a rural church in a village in Somerset and those in the audience felt very privileged to be there.
Nicola Rose also performed two solo pieces, one by Edward Grieg and the wonderful "Man I Love" by George and Ira Gershwin, bringing the church piano to life.
It was an evening with the intensity of pure music, of talent and of awe. The amazing voice of Sarah and the musical accompaniment of Nicola together created stunningly beautiful music.
Both girls have a local connection. Sarah is from Easton and Nicola's parents live in Draycott both girl's parents were in the audience and must have felt very proud of their very talented daughters who, with just a voice and a piano, impressed so much.
At the end of the concert and to sustained applause and cries of "encore" the girls finished with a Somerset folk song, "Away, Away" set to music by Benjamin Britten.
At the end of the evening the Rev. Paula Hollingsworth thanked Jane Hilborne and Pam Yates from the village for all their hard work in making the musical magic possible The proceeds from the concert (£623) will go to St Paul's
