A Touch of Brass Supports St Thomas’ Sponsored Hymns

The group played at St Thomas’s Church in New Marske on Saturday in support of the Sponsored Hymn Singing event.

A Touch of Brass provided a six piece ensemble consisting of Jen, Jayne and Chris on cornet; Andrew and Helen on horn; and Kaye anchoring the group on bass. Playing for an hour, while the organist took a well earned break, the sextet played hymns chosen by the congregation including ‘Dear Lord and Father of Mankind’, ‘The Lord Is My Shepherd’, ‘Praise My Soul The King of Heaven’ and the rousing ‘I Vow to Thee My Country’.

The acoustics in St Thomas’ were lovely and the congregation sang with gusto raising much needed funds for the church. A Touch of Brass was pleased to be able to support this wonderful community event and had a thoroughly enjoyable time.
