Tribute to servicemen in church concert
PHOTOS of former servicemen were projected onto the walls of a church during a concert to mark Armed Forces Day.
Dozens of people packed into the Parish Church of St Peter and St Paul for a rousing commemorative Proms Concert to mark the centenary of the outbreak of World War One.
Trumpeter Ian Lynch sounded The Last Post while there were also poignant readings of pieces from Noel Coward, Wilfred Owen, Rupert Brook and Robert W Service by David Riccardo-Pearce and Marianne Oldham.
But there were also more light-hearted and rousing renditions of 'It’s A Long Way To Tipperary', 'Pack Up Your Troubles' and - loudest of all, with the congregation waving Union Jacks - 'Jerusalem'.
The concert was organised by Fiona Firth, musical director of Singers4all, and featured the group's choirs, pupils from the Misbourne School Harmony Choir, the Great Missenden CofE Combined School singers and folk band the Wick Trimmers.
Mrs Firth said: "So many people put so much effort into this concert that it was wonderful to see such a massive audience in the church. I was very moved by all the lovely comments we received.
"It was great to be able to make our own contribution to the country’s week long events to honour our fantastic armed forces."
