2014 Civic Harvest & Jazz Eucharist at St. Anne’s, Shandon

October 26, 2014 by Evin

It was hopping from the bells to the liars this morning at St. Anne’s Church. Rev’d. Brian O’Rourke, Rev’d Paula Geary, and Tony Murph rolled out an all-inclusive lively service for those lucky enough to have a ticket to the free annual event. As part of The Big Fringe, this is one of the most sought after tickets of the Guinness Jazz Festival. In its sixth year, the service was more popular than ever, sadly having to turn non-ticket holders away due to lack of seating. The Lord Mayor not only attended, but did a reading as did parish regular (and my friend) Stephen Spillane. Lydia Monds also addressed the community about Samaritans. The St. John’s Gospel Choir returned with their dulcet harmonies and were joined by The New York Brass Band from the UK. Here are some photos and links to videos so you can feel like you were there with us for this glorious celebration of community, Jazz, and Christ.

Shandon Jazz Service at St. Anne's. A very Cork tradition as part of Guinness Jazz Festival.

    WOW. THANK YOU. THIS WAS WONDERFUL !

    I recall speaking with a publican some time back and he was saying that pubs had to offer more than just the pint of plain if they were to survive – be it music or food; or even a range of eclectic craft beers.

    The argument was that there were very many demands on people’s time and money and so a night out in a pub is now a treat rather than the norm and so the evening had to have something different or special to offer.

    Based upon the vast difference in size of the congregation, it may be that this argument also applies to St. Anne’s Shandon – if you were there this morning, you would have swelled the congregation to 27

    I just want to say that the 3 video clips of the New York Brass Band playing at St Anne’s Shandon Church Civic Harvest and Jazz Eucharist 26 October 2014 was amazing and the lady singer was very good , I loved seeing the 3 video clips , but the 3 video clips have now been taken down , Is there any hope of getting a copy of the 3 video clips of The New York Brass Band and the lady singer that sang at St Anne’s Shandon Church Civic Harvest and Jazz Eucharist 26 October 2014 and Brian O’ Rourke was rector

Enough about me. What are you thinking?
