St. Stephen Walbrook is the perfect masterpiece created by Sir Christopher Wren. Beautiful proportions, bright and airy with a stunning dome, which is a mini version of the dome of St. Paul's Cathedral. A modern altar by Sir Henry Moore and lovely circular seating. Imagine sitting in these divine suroundings and listening to music by an exciting new international trio called Varietas. Some pieces of music were played together, but each member of the trio, consisting of piano, flute and oboe also showed us their skills in solo pieces. An exciting and well put together programme of music, and an hour spent in wonderful surroundings and away from the hustle and bustle of the city. And it was free!
This was just one of the many recitals that take place in City churches every day of the week. There are at least a choice of 3-4 concerts every day, all for free. What a wonderful treasure to have and I wish it was better known. The programme of events can be found in the churches. Why not pick up a list when you are next passing a City church and come and join a recital one day. You will not be disappointed. All the recitals are of the highest quality with gifted young classically trained musicians.
