Fourth Sunday after Trinity

<p> 

 

 

Sitting listening then kneeling at what would have been the communion rail in Richmond Chapel, Tolver Place, Penzance TR18 2AD ....the sound artist Janet Cardiff has installed 40 speakers in an oval, each broadcasting one choir member’s voice singing from Thomas Tallis’ “Spem in Alium” (1556). It is a sound bath, you are bathed even submerged in sound.

And more than that.... it is a prayer calling down the Holy Spirit and pouring out a blessing upon our town of Penzance, with all its troubles. Who knew?! How God uses mortal souls to do his work! And this is happening six days a week from 10 to 5 until the 27th August! Amazing. And everyone who comes to listen, joins in this prayer of blessing in some way, even if they don’t realise it.

Do go.
