Anthems of the Church’s Year


On November 18th, Bournemouth and District Association of Organists will be holding an event at St Stephen’s Church, Bournemouth, from 2pm until 5pm.  Nigel Groome will direct a choral workshop consisting of anthems of varying difficulty, some of which  we may not have sung before. The event will finish with a short service at which we will sing what we have learnt during the afternoon.  Tea will be provided by members of the Bournemouth Association. If you wish to attend what promises to be a very interesting and instructive afternoon will you please inform Jenny Wright, telephone 01425 473963,  email

There is no charge, but there will be a retiring collection to help defray the costs of the afternoon.  We look forward to seeing you there.  There is parking at the church (if you arrive before all places have been taken!) or in the public car park opposite. The organ will be played by Ian Harrison.


Nigel Groome is the Director of Music at St. Matthew’s Church and is a Music Advisor for Church Music Future.

Previously he was for many years Director of Music at Beckenham Parish Church. Under his direction the choir toured extensively in this country and overseas, and broadcast regularly for the BBC.

For over twenty years he worked for the Royal School Of Church Music as a Regional Music Advisor. Nigel has visited the U.S.A. on over thirty occasions to give recitals and to conduct choirs festivals. He has made similar visits to the Diocese of Europe.
