Harvest at St Faith's:  The Late Summer Concert September 2008

It is a truth universally acknowledged that St. Faith’s knows how to feed its congregation. So it proved once again on Saturday, 13th September 2008 when St. Faith’s sat down for home made casseroles and second helpings of crumbles. This was followed by the Late Summer Concert, for St. Faith’s not only knows how to cook but also how to make music.

The evening contained many premiers, with many first time solos. Some sought safety in numbers, such as the St. Faith’s Folk Group and the girls from the St. Faith’s choir, who performed their own version of “Sister Act” and a jazzed up version of Salve Regina.

The tone of the concert was somewhat uplifted by the arrival of Margaret and Elizabeth, fresh from receiving their DBEs from the Queen. They then explained, in song, how other members of the church had been considered for honours for services to St. Faith’s and the cogent and highly revealing reasons why the Queen refused to comply. By the way DBE stands for Dust and Bug Exterminators.

This was followed by our Rural Dean who was rather alarmed at the revelations he had just heard and his song was a lament on what church could resist the charms of Swanage, Paris, Bruges and Dublin. But the unexpected highlight was the appearance of the Team Vicar and Church Wardens, disguised in the guise of Abba who proceeded to show what one can do with a feather boa.

Many thanks to Lorna for organizing the evening, to Gordon for compéring, to the Mitchells for much of the music, and for the cooks of St. Faith’s for providing the food!
