Whirlow has been home to the highly successful ‘We who sing pray twice’ events for many years, but other musical activity has largely consisted of recordings and occasional hymns and songs in the monthly reflective worship and weekly Eucharist services.
This programme will introduce chamber-style classical music events recognising the spiritual dimension of music, to use it to celebrate the unique atmosphere and ideal setting of the Chapel. The series is intended to offer musical performances resonating with the reflective, meditative and affirmative style of this special place.
