On Sunday 1 May the 9am Holy Communion service at St Peter & St Paul Church Stondon Massey will include music by William Byrd on disc. It will also be the launch date for two new booklets: 'William Byrd: Some Notes', and 'Revd. Edward Henry Lisle Reeve. The Last Gentleman Clergyman of Stondon Massey'. More about the Edwardian Rector will be published on this site shortly.
Then on Sunday 8 May, from 2.30 to 4.30pm, the church throws open its doors to visitors on the first of its 'second Sunday in the month' open afternoons. Come and see the William Byrd Memorial, a copy of his last will and testament. Listen to music by the great composer, and have a cup of tea. The church will also be open in 2011 on Sunday 12 June, Sunday 14 August, and Sunday 11 September.
