Music Notes

William France (1912-1985) was an organist, composer, pianist and teacher who, besides holding many positions as organist-choirmaster in numerous Ontario town churches, taught harmony and counterpoint at the University of Ottawa and was an examiner for the Royal Conservatory of Music. Most of his choral compositions are for the church, but he also wrote songs, piano pieces, organ music, and works for small ensembles.

William Boyce (1711–1779) is widely regarded as one of the most important English-born composers of the 18th century. Apart from eight delightful ‘symphonies’, Boyce is mostly unknown except for his large output of church music. When he retired from his various organist posts because of deafness, he continued working on the collection known as “Cathedral Music”. This led to Boyce editing works by the likes of William Byrd and Henry Purcell. Many of the pieces in the collection are still used in Anglican services today.

Do you have your ticket for “Remembering”, our tribute in words and music (both secular and sacred) to all those who fought in he two great wars? It takes place on Sunday 9 November at 4 pm here in the church and features our choir and leads, piper Brendan Culver, organist Simon Walker and guest tenor Christopher Mayell. Please help us to fill the church by spreading the word to your family, friends, neighbours, and yes, even to strangers!
