The acting Bishop of London has endorsed plans to exclude musicians from performances and rehearsals at St Sepulchre-without-Newgate, formerly known as the National Musicians Church.
In a statement of inimitable insipidity, Bishop Pete Broadbent says: ‘Although St Sepulchre has for many years been the spiritual home of the National Musicians’ Chapel, and will continue to be so, many of our churches can rightfully claim to exercise a role as a musicians’ church.’
The Church Times has a full report on these pathetic parochial plots.
The outcome is that St Sep’s is no longer there for musicians.
Savour the memory. There will be no saviour.
