October Lecture: An overview of the role of music in our worship services over the centuries. Presented by Mervin Fick, Music Director at St. Anne's.

It's a slideshow of maps, personalities, art and architecture, plus movie and music clips that help tell the story. 

Over the coming year, lectures will explore: music, art and architecture, the Christian calendar of seasons and holy days, how we engage our intellect, the role of drama from passion plays through to the impact of modern technology.
