Foresters’ Forest Festival of Brass and Voices

This was a wonderful event – Saturday evening, with a comfortably full church at All Saints, Newland.  Royal Forest of Dean Male Voice Choir and Forest of Dean Brass performed both separately and together, the last combined piece being ‘Union’ commemorating the Union Pit disaster of 1902, composed by band director Chris Howley.

There were other pieces too, including the opening title of Star Wars, inspired by the filming at Puzzle Wood – with Darth Vader to announce it in the pulpit!

The prayer that opened the concert:
Creator God,
you are God of the past, the present and the future
and hold both the dead and the living in your hands.
Be present with us now as we celebrate our mining heritage,
be present as we commemorate those who lost their lives,
be present as we celebrate our musical heritage through brass and voice,
and by your light lead us into a future of renewed connection to our landscape
and creative expression of our unique character.
Your kingdom come, and your will be done,
here in the beautiful Forest of Dean,
through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
