Bishop Jonathan sings in celebration of Jubilee
The Rt Revd Jonathan Meyrick has teamed up with north Norfolk singer/songwriter Jack Barratt to perform the piece, which has been named 'Diamond Jubilee Waltz' It will be performed for the first time at a gala concert in Aylsham next month.
Mr Barratt, a professional singer from Happisburgh who has performed across the world, wrote the song last Christmas with the intention of putting together a concert. He went in search of a second voice to accompany him and through his fellow members of the Aylsham Band he discovered the Bishop of Lynn was a singer and approached him to join him in the duet.
The concert on June 9 was described by Mr Barratt as a "high class variety show" which will tell the Queen's story through narration from Bishop Jonathan together with supporting musical and dance performances.
The gala concert is being held at Aylsham Parish Church from 7.30pm. Tickets cost £7, including refreshments, and are available from James the Barber in Aylsham market place on 01263 732445.
