The Parish of Ponteland

Music

Our churches have been places of music ever since they were built, as men and women use their musical gifts to sing God's praise. St Mary's has a good pipe organ, Holy Saviour an electronically blown pipe organ. St Mary's has a choir that sings every week, Holy Saviour one that comes together for the festivals. Our Band plays for the Family Service. Music is also part of the life of our schools, and an important part of weddings and funerals. Frederick Delius wrote that "Music is an outburst of the soul" and Thomas Carlyle that "Music is well said to be the speech of angels." In the Bible the final Psalm ends "Let everything that has breath, praise the Lord" (Psalm 150.6)
