Evensong for the Lord Lieutenant

At the kind invitation of the Lord Lieutenant of Northamptonshire, David Laing, the Rector of Northampton, Father Oliver Coss SSC, and the Master of the Worshipful Company of Leathersellers, Mike Bradly Russell, over forty members of the Choir sang Choral Evensong earlier tonight on this the feast day of Ss Crispin and Crispinian, historic Patron Saints of Northampton and of the shoe industry.

This year’s celebration was particularly notable as earlier in the day the first new footwear factory for over 30 years opened in Northampton. Shoemaking has been part of Northampton’s life since the fifteenth century, and by the early 1900s the town was the largest producer of shoes in Europe.

The choir were delighted to reprise music from Choral Evensong services earlier in the year, with our Musical Director’s Responses beginning proceedings, before the choir sang Bryan Kelly’s Evening Service in C major, and Sir C. Hubert H. Parry’s Blest Pair of Sirens as the anthem. And our beautiful choral and organ music was not the only thing the congregation were able to hear, as the St Crispin’s fairground rides were in full swing outside!
