2. The Importance of Music
For Brixton Unitarians, music is a very important part of the spiritual life, and we are blessed in our modern premises which have a fine acoustic and are ideal for in-service and post-service performances, and in our MD Jason and AMD Ricky, and our Autumn, Winter and Spring Concert Series (see Post-service Music below).
3. In-Service Music
(a) We imaginatively follow the Church and National Year and mark New Year, Lent, Mothering Sunday, Easter, St George’s Day, Father’s Day, Harvest Festival, All Saints / All Souls, Remembrance Sunday, Advent, Christmas and Year End. On all of these occasions, special music is selected by Minister Julian and MD Jason, and we are often joined by a Tenor or Soprano.
(b) Our regular Sundays are all thematic too, and again Julian and Jason select appropriate music, hymns and folk songs.
4. Post-Service Music: Brixton Unitarians’ Concert Series
In-service music is complimented by post-service music once a month, in the form of Brixton Unitarians’ Concert Series put on by Jason and Ricky. These concerts start at 12:15pm, and last approximately one hour and are timed to be convenient for those who have attended our service that morning and for the many now coming-in from further afield. They showcase recognised emerging talent, are an education and a delight, and have become another important part of our spiritual practice.
Our next concert on 26th November 2023 welcomes a rare performance of Klaus Simon’s arrangement of Gustav Mahler’s Fourth Symphony with The Brixton Soloists and soloist Hannah Dienes-Williams, directed by our Artistic Director Jason Taing.
All are warmly welcome to our Goodbye 2023 Ancient Carols’ Service at 11:45am on 17th December 2023. We will be joined by soprano Clara Orif, and bass Jack Redman, accompanied by our Musical Director Jason Taing. We will be receiving cash donations to Brixton Foodbank, with gift aid available. Tickets are free, but we strongly encourage pre-booking in advance to avoid disappointment.
