At St Saviour’s Wendell Park Church, Cobbold Road, W12 CB will be giving a time of Lent musical meditation with sacred music arising out of silence and falling back into silence providing space for personal reflection.

We will invite donations to Musequality (www.musequality.org) to further their work in music education for very underprivileged youngsters
12 February 2011 saw Voices of Chiswick Baroque with Cathy Schofield (violin) premiering settings by Celia of 7 Yeats poems for solo voice and violin. Ros Keating, Shelley Smith and Oliver Hinton sang with Cathy Schofield from the bleak “He hears the cry of the sedge” to the wistful Cloths of Heaven” and the jovial “Fiddler of Dooney”. This was as part of a Composers Present concert. We are hoping to include these songs in a Chiswick Baroque concert soon,
