Director of Music hosts Ordinands of St Mellitus College

The Director of Music at St Botolph's, Mr Iestyn Evans, on Monday 14th July
hosted a singing seminar for a number of students from St Mellitus College.
Most of these Ordinands are preparing to be made Deacon in the next year
and they participated in a very practical course that included basic
plainchant, the standard Anglican 'Versicles and Responses' of Evensong,
and even the fearsome Exsultet! The seminar concluded with an Evening
Office.

The idea of the session came from My Andy Rooney, one of the Ordinands, and
a member of St Botolph's weekday congregation.
