St Martin-in-the-Field

Exterior of St Martin in the Fields from Trafalgar Square

In a previous post I talked about H and her new job in London. She recently moved south, and last weekend I visited her as she was settling in.

On Sunday we went to the Morning Eucharist service at St Martin in the Fields off Trafalgar Square. Being regulars at St Mary’s Cathedral in Glasgow, we selected a church which has a reputation for music.

Being Sea Sunday, the hymns reflected a nautical theme. The setting for the service was Mass of All Saints (Wilson), with the anthem after the sermon Sicut cervus (Palestrina) and the Motet after communion Brother James’ Air (arr. Jacob). The Revd Katherine Hedderly preached, with her sermon reflecting on the Parish Weekend which had been held a week early.

The organ is located on the gallery at the rear of the church. We were sitting to the rear of the building almost underneath the organ.
