It's a big deal to be invited to perform for an Association of Anglican Musicians national conference! As such, I was pleased that the leaders, knowing our reputation for high quality and for pushing the boundaries of church repertoire, asked us to lead a Jazz Matins. We had the repertoire, with Bill Cunliffe, and both Canterbury and Coventry choirs arranged to take the day off to lead this service.
More than anything, I was deeply moved by the ovation the AAM members gave to the fact that there were even choirs there during the middle of the day. That never happens at these conferences. I just thought that sort of thing was normal! It was a beautiful service and many of the AAM members were moved.
