THE EASTER CONCERT: By the Downland Singers recently, made a departure from the usual Easter offerings. Instead of Olivet to Calvary or The Crucifixion, this year we had a selection of hymns and songs written by a variety of other composers. A journey through Holy Week in music and readings with the Downland Singers. We began with an organ prelude Christ, thou Lamb of God, played on the organ by Alastair Macfadyen. Followed by a welcome and prayer by our Minister Rev David Yule. Then the choir sang On the way to Jerusalem and rejoice the Lord is King. Then the congregation sang the hymn, Make way, make way for Christ the King. Then the choir sang I don’t know how to love him and All in the April evening. A reading from Matthew 26: 17-30, was followed by another hymn My Song is Love Unknown followed by the choir singing The Holy City and Were You There When They Crucified My Lord. A reading by a choir member on Good Friday Meditation, ‘He was thinking of me, even then’ thoughts of Mary the Mother of Jesus. Followed by Ave Verum and God so loved the World. After prayers we sang When I survey the wonderous cross. Finally a benediction and the choir with A Clare Benediction Postlude on the organ O World I Must Leave Thee. The choir left in silence. There was a retiring collection in aid of People Matter. Info on the Downland Singers can be found on http://downlandsingers.webplus.net

PHOTOGRAPHIC SOCIETY: The society welcomed Kirsty Ralfs to judge the 2017 projected digital images final. Beginners: 1, Raindrops aren’t falling on my head by Linda Busby and winner of the Swallow Cup, the composition of umbrellas having good control of exposure and sharpness. 2, Keeping in touch by Dee McNabb, an image of a period musician with his mobile phone giving a touch of humour. 3, The Eye at night, with the illuminated pods of the London Eye creating a prominent graphic image. Intermediate: 1, and the Sussex Shield, Everest base camp by moonlight by Alan Pearce. The combination of illuminated snow, glow from within the tents, clouds and pin points of light from stars in the dark sky made this a stand-out winner. 2, Watching and Waiting by David Philips, a kingfisher perched on a lichen covered branch that had all the attributes of a good natural history image with sharpness, eye highlight and separation from the background. 3, Getting away from it by Alan Pearce, an exotic beach scene that could hold its own with any holiday brochure photograph. Advance: 1, and the Albert Hillman Trophy Seeing colours of the Atacama by Peggy McKenzie. A landscape image that had excellent control of light that drew the eye into the picture and the all important group of people to provide scale. 2, Cowslips - Primula veris by Janice Payne ARPS, an atmospheric, misty image with sparkling dew drops. 3, Lisianthus by Janet Monk, a beautifully sharp flower portrait with complementary background. Highly commended: Eileen James, Peggy McKenzie, Sean Keen, Janice Payne, Ray Beckwith and Alan Bousfield. Chairman, David Mills thanked Kirsty for her considered and constructive comments and congratulated all the members whose photography had made the evening one of quality, variety and interest.
