‘There has been a church dedicated to St Margaret of Antioch in Lothbury, the street that runs along the north side of the Bank of England, since the 12th Century. In later centuries the parish was augmented by the incorporation of seven adjacent parishes, whose churches were lost through the Great Fire, the Second World War and the expansion of City institutions ... It is the church of five livery companies (the Armourers and Brasiers, the Glovers of London, the Tylers and Bricklayers, the Tin Plate Workers alias Wire Workers and the Scientific Instrument Makers), two Ward Clubs (Broad St. and Coleman St.) and one professional institution (the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales). It is also the parish church of the Bank of England and several local firms. Each hold special services at various times in the year ... The organ recital programme changes each week and, as well as our resident organist, features international celebrity organists.’

‘One of the area's leading choral societies, performing a variety of classical music ... We generally perform three concerts a year, mainly in the magnificent setting of the Central Hall, Grimsby ... Over the years, the Phil has treated Grimsby audiences to some of the most famous soloists of the day, such as Peter Pears, Kathleen Ferrier and Isobel Baillie, Thomas Allen and Elisabeth Schumann ... A concert of an all-Britten programme not only featured Peter Pears but also included the composer amongst the audience. The performance later prompted him to remark that he believed it to be the first concert in the country devoted solely to his music.‘

What is contemporary classical? ‘Ambient music with a meditative, serene feel to it ... Introspective and soothing with emphasis placed on repeated melodic patterns ... Accessible, captivating and powerfully cinematic ... Often gentle, slow progressing and hypnotic ... Electronic, epic - music which soars and undulates with an emotive drive ... Serene, delicate and pensive contemporary classical music which feels meditative and a pinch chaotic.’

‘Now the only church used for regular services in the old City ... We are a very traditional church, and our services, with very few exceptions, accord to the 1662 Book of Common Prayer. Our Bible readings are exclusively from the Authorised Version, and we enjoy a very high standard of preaching from our Priest in Charge and several visiting clergy. We have an eclectic congregation who come from all parts of the City and beyond, to enjoy the dignity of our form of worship, the tradition of good preaching and music ... The organ, first mentioned in 1552 ‘has its own distinctive voice, and speaks with a definite "Old English" accent. It is perhaps fortuitous that at Christ Church, things change slowly’.

‘North Oxfordshire-based musician Chris Windass founded the Oxford Coffee Concerts series in 1986 when he booked the Holywell Music Room for four Sunday morning appearances by his own chamber music group, the Adderbury Ensemble. While that first season attracted audiences of just 35 or fewer, Chris was encouraged enough by the enthusiasm of the people who did make it to those early concerts to put on a second series. Happily, audience numbers started to grow as his group’s fame spread. The frequency of concerts soon increased from fortnightly to weekly and the Adderbury Ensemble’s recitals eventually had to be supplemented with appearances from other celebrated chamber music ensembles and soloists ... Oxford Coffee Concerts continue to take place on Sunday mornings throughout the year in the stunning setting of the Holywell Music Room, the oldest purpose-built concert venue in Europe. And every concert ticket still entitles the holder to a complimentary cup of coffee ...’

‘Brainchild of local composer Robert Walker, Lord Egremont, and a group of like-minded local people, the first festival took place over a September weekend in 1979 with concerts featuring English music staged in the wonderful acoustic of Petworth’s parish church, St. Mary’s. As the Festival’s popularity and reputation grew, so the dates were changed, the current three weeks in July were established in 2000 ... Alongside a substantial outreach programme and events promoting the work of young performers, the Festival presents prestige concerts across the genres.’
