St. Mary's Church, Plympton

The Masonic Choir led the singing at St Mary's Church, Plympton, on Wednesday 22nd August, at the funeral of a much loved Brother Phillip Anthony Jones. The pall-bearers were his fellow Brethren from Victory Lodge 4189 in Plymouth, which was his Mother Lodge. A reading was given by his son Wayne and a poem by his daughter Nicola. The eulogy was given by W.Bro Bill Wakeham. His widow Donna wished to thank the Masonic Choir, which was very much appreciated by the congregation. The Funeral service was conducted by Father Will Sweeney. Amazing Grace was sung by the Choir as the family and mourners left the Church.

The Choir at Cadogan Court

The roof was lifted by song at the Cadogan Court annual fair this year. The Devonshire Masonic Choir made their mark by filling the rooms with harmony, under the direction of Barrington Sowden. Their repertoire included popular songs such as Lennon and McCartney's composition 'Yesterday', to a diverse selection including the glorious 'Finlandia Hymn' by Jean Sibelius. The audience were left wanting more, and the choir will be working hard to increase their repertoire over the months to come. Listen to the choir here

The quality of their singing was exceeded only by the smart new uniforms donated by their kind benefactor Jill Hurford. The centre front row shows Jill accompanied by Grand Lodge Officer Andy Vodden MBE. They are in turn flanked by Barrington to the left and their Chairman and founder member Bill Wakeham to the right.
