St Bride's: Listen Online

Robert Jones, Organist

Robert Jones
Director of Music

The Choir of St Bride's, Fleet Street is proud to be the first adult professional choir, and also the first London church choir to offer web-casting of services. This is very fitting for a church with such strong media links, and I hope it will bring the distinctive and exciting sound of the St. Bride's choir to a wider audience.

For those who have not heard us before, the choir is an ensemble of 12 professional soloists, enhanced by the wonderful acoustics of Wren's church and the magnificent Compton organ. The choir is famed for its versatility, and is equally at home in operatic excerpts and popular arrangements, but the traditional Anglican repertoire is at the heart of what we do.

Journalists' Memorial Service: A Mission in PerilListen Online

The word 'mission' implies a sense of vocation, a calling to go to the frontiers and trouble-spots of the world to understand, to interpret and to bear witness. It is a word with unmistakably religious connotations but it is also an appropriate description of the journalist's duty to keep in touch with all that is happening in the world, to spot the events of significance, and to relay them to others in a form which can be readily understood.

Public enlightenment is the forerunner of justice and the foundation of democracy. As journalists we further those ends by seeking truth and providing a fair and comprehensive account of events and issues. Recent events in the Middle East and especially in Syria have highlighted the importance of accurate reporting on the ground and the risks associated with this.

This year, our title 'A Mission In Peril: Celebrating The Media in Troubled Times' refers not only to those on the front line, but to everyone in an industry which more than ever faces perils now and uncertainty ahead.

So tonight we remember once again all whose mission it is to bring us the news, sometimes at terrible cost, and we celebrate the profession of journalism, and the priceless value of freedom of speech.
