The music at our service in Newton Church on Sunday was enhanced by a visit from John Seymour, Sedbergh’s former Head of Music and now Housemaster of Powell House, with members of the schools ‘Man Choir’ (made up largely of rugby players). Performing Roger Quilter’s Non nobis, domine, the choir amply demonstrated that prowess on the sports field is not incompatible with sensitive choral singing, and the wonderful lower voices enriched the congregational singing too.   Mr Seymour treated us to some inspiring organ playing and, in his address, urged us to appreciate and make the most of the present, rather than fixating on the future.  We are grateful that they found time at this busy period of the year to make the journey from Cumbria.
