Chloe Treharne sings 'Land of Hope and Glory'
Brentwood Cathedral’s Parish Hall was packed on Sunday 3 June for a special Jubilee Tea Party. The 120 plus people who squeezed in spanned four generations and all threw themselves into celebrating the Jubilee in style.
There were cakes galore with tables groaning under their weight. Singers from the Cathedral choirs and music groups sang a programme of national music with a ‘Last Night of the Proms’ finale, conducted by David Worsfold and accompanied by Andrew Wright and Stephen King. The whole hall was on its feet singing as the party atmosphere embraced them.
Solos were sung by Chloe Treharne – Rule, Britannia, Land of Hope and Glory and the Londonderry Air – and Graham Greenaway, who sang ‘There’ll Always be an England’
For the children there was a fancy dress competition which was judged by Deacon Paul Conrad.
Earlier in the day the 11.30am Mass was offered in Thanksgiving for HM The Queen, with music from the Coronation including I Was Glad and Zadock the Priest.
