This was a wonderful and unique event in the life of St Annes, when we attracted over a 1,000 visitors to view arts, crafts and textiles made by people associated with the church. It is hoped we will have a similar smaller event next year.

Sunday 24 July

6.00pm Evensong with Sussex Harmony
Sussex Harmony, based in Lewes, was founded in 1992. We research our repertoire from manuscript sources – particularly the MacDermott collection held at Barbican House, Lewes. We are the current ‘custodians of the ‘West Gallery’ repertoire’ in Sussex and welcome requests to share our research into this rich and wonderful repertoire with musicians and singers throughout the county.
We are leading a workshop of West Gallery Music. This is robust music from before the age of the church organ. The more the merrier as this music needs to be sung and played with as much enthusiasm as accuracy. You will learn the hymns, psalms, canticles and an anthem that were sung in rural Sussex churches in the 18th and 19th centuries.
We shall be singing these in the Evening Service at 6p.m.
They are fun to sing and play and relatively easy to learn.
Come and Celebrate – Sing and Play!! All welcome
Singers AND Musicians are needed for the Quire and Gallery Band!
2.30 – 5.00p.m. WORKSHOP followed by a
Book of Common Prayer Evening Service starting at 6.00p.m.
Everyone is welcome to join us for the Service
Come to sing or play (flute, recorder, oboe, clarinet, violin, cello, trombone or serpent).
You are very welcome to come and listen to the workshop.
