Great Sacred Music: Suffering

(Thursday 8th August)

Great Sacred Music
Thursday 6th August

Led by Revd Dr Sam Wells, with St Martin’s Voices, directed by Gabriella Noble.

O sacred head, sore wounded (J.S. Bach)
Thou knowest Lord (Purcell)
Surely he hath born our griefs (Handel)
By gracious powers (William Bradley Roberts)

The music was recorded in person at St Martin-in-the-Fields, in strict compliance with the current government guidelines on professional singing in church and social distancing.

    I was saddend to hear grief was not addressed. My dear husband died from brain cancer in february.a hugely good man, a wonderful musician,flautist. A well man all his life except last 15th months. He was 73. I miss his physical presence so, i have a good faith,but this is so difficult to accept,
