Big Sing to feature choirs, musical groups and soloists

The Clogher Diocesan Big Sing which takes place on Sunday evening, 18th November, at 7pm in St Macartin’s Cathedral, Enniskillen, will bring together a number of choirs, music groups and soloists from parishes across the diocese.

This first event of its kind in the area will feature a number of popular hymns chosen by readers of the Clogher Diocesan Magazine who responded to the appeal for requests – well–known hymns such as “Be Thou My Vision,” “Blessed Assurance,” “And Can it Be,” “Great is Thy Faithfulness,” “How Great Thou Art; “Stand up Stand up for Jesus” and “In Christ Alone.”

Soloists taking part will include Linda Lyndsay, Roy Crowe and Michelle Elliott as well as instrumentalists Warren Kerr and Gavin Rogers and others including Ethne McCord, Jayne Malcolmson, the Revd Olivia Downey, the Revd Andrew Quill and Lorna Thompson.

A number of clergy and parishioners from parishes across the Diocese will also be taking part. Among the well–known faces from parishes introducing their favourite hymn will include Bishop John McDowell, Elizabeth Armstrong, Dean Kenny Hall, Irene Boyd, Arlene Foster, Stuart Brooker, the Revd Neal Phair, Rosemary Barton, Walter Pringle and others.

Some parishes have already booked a coach to bring parishioners along to the occasion.

Everyone is welcome to attend what is expected to be an uplifting evening of music and praise.
