Composer James Moriarty was delighted with St Margaret’s Church choir’s rendition of his Pentecost service.

Pentecost is a significant date in the Christian calendar. The festival commemorates the coming of the Holy Spirit to the disciples following the death of Jesus Christ.
In the Bible it is described how the apostles, who were gathered to celebrate the Jewish harvest festival of Shavvot, began to talk in foreign tongues, leading the massed onlookers to assume that they were drunk.
Dorothy Raven, choir member, said: “Our young composer who wrote the new Pentecost anthem came to the service, and he was really pleased with the performance.”
