On Sunday 13th November Dulwich Prep joined the congregation of St Stephen’s, College Road for the annual Service of Remembrance. Almost 90 musicians from the Prep participated in this moving and poignant occasion.
The service was led by Revd. Dr. Rebecca Lloyd, Curate at St. Stephen’s and the Vicar, Revd. Canon Bernhard Schünemann, preached the sermon.
The Choir sang the atmospheric setting of the Agnus Dei from Bob Chilcott’s Peace Mass as well as Mr Brooke’s setting of The Day Thou Gavest, Lord, is ended.
The Brass Group, at its largest since its formation, played World War 1 songs before the service and accompanied hymns.
The Group also accompanied the National Anthem at the War Memorial, at which the Headmaster and Head Boy, Johnny Blake McGrath, laid a wreath on behalf of the Dulwich Prep community. Trumpeters from the Prep played the Last Post and Reveille.
Thank you to all who took part in what is a moving and important occasion in our year.
