If you were at our Christmas Eve service last year, you would have heard the beautiful musical accompaniment provided by two of our musicians – Jeremy on the organ, and Anne Marie on the violin.
If you are interested in hearing more, Anne Marie is a member of Dei Gratia – an ensemble of musicians who specialise in baroque music on period instruments, and are also all committed Christians. Dei Gratia means “by the grace of God.”
Much well-known Baroque music, particularly choral music (for example Handel’s Messiah or Bach’s St. John and St. Matthew Passions), presents Bible texts, and was originally composed for performance in the context of Christian worship. The members of Dei Grati have a heart for using their musical gifts to serve churches and communities, and to encourage performers and audiences alike to think again about the glorious inspiration of these masterpieces.
Dei Gratia have 3 concerts coming up in March, one in Oxford and two in London. For more information please visit their website and check the events page.
