We were so lucky to welcome to St Nicholas’, young pianist Katie Yao Morgan who played a piano recital for us on Thursday, after the usual 10.30 Eucharist service.
Katie, a graduate of the Yehudi Menuhin School, now studies at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam, and was able to arrange this concert for us in her half-term. Katie played
Beethoven Sonata op.78, Schumann’s Humoreske and Kabalevsky’s Rondo to the universal enjoyment of all watching.
We were very lucky today to have the wonderful boys and men of Chichester Cathedral Choir to sing Evensong at St Nicholas’, Worth. They were so well-behaved and polite, and of course, made a lovely sound in the acoustics of our ancient building. It was such a treat for all who were there, and thank you to all for giving so generously in the retiring collection. For those who couldn’t make it, please enjoy these photographs.
