Singing in The Minster, Preston Guild

This morning Preston Community Choir sang a Guild Anthem written by Lyndon Hills at the Guild Mayor's Thanksgiving Service, held in the Minster Church of St John the Evangelist, Preston.

We were asked to wear black and silver!

This is Joe Martin, our musical director, the website is www.prestoncommunitychoir.com if you'd like to check us out:)

The Minster roof is quite spectacular, don't you think?

The window is more spectacular than my humble camera is able to show!

The church began to fill up with invited guests.

The officials processed down the centre aisle.

The standards looked impressive as they lined up ready to depart.

This was the final event of the Preston Guild week as far as my singing goes.  Following the service we processed through the streets across to the Guild Hall, where, after shaking hands with the dignitaries, we took a glass of wine before adjourning upstairs to enjoy a simple lunch.  

A lovely ending to a very special few days:)
