Choral Classics – My Beloved Spake
Wednesday 15th February 2023

We hope you enjoy this recording of Choral Classics this week. Join us in church every Wednesday lunchtime at 12.30pm if you are able for twenty five minutes of sublime music in our beautiful building. Next Wednesday Choral Classics takes a break but do join us for our Choral Eucharist for Ash Wednesday, when our choir will sing Byrd’s Mass for Five Voices. Please support the ministry of St Stephen Walbrook by making a donation at this link if you are able.

Read the script and text of the poems at this link.
