Story posted on

THE organisers of the Edington online festival are aiming to bring a little bit of Edington festival magic to everyone and celebrate its key themes – liturgy, music and friendship.

They report, “Over the course of the festival dates,  23rd-30th August, we will be releasing a series of videos which will feature music from previous festivals, (all the way back to 1966) alongside newly-recorded prayers, liturgical reflections from the clergy team and voluntaries from the festival organists.  

“BBC Radio 3 will broadcast the archived Evensong from 2015 at 3.30pm on Wednesday 26th August,  followed by some light-hearted contributions from Ben Sawyer and his trusty singers. at 8.00pm as usual.  The week will finish in grand style with a very special recording of the traditional finale, the Parsons Ave Maria, featuring regular participants and some special guests.

“The programme for the week, which starts with compline at 9.15pm on Sunday 23rd August, is available on the festival website, www.edingtonfestival.org.  Music details will be added when confirmed.
