World premiere: Celebrating Women in the Bible

In 2022 Bishop Graham preached at St Andrew’s on many of Silvia Dimitrova’s seven paintings of Women in the Bible and his poems on them. Tristan Latchford’s world premiere of his seven anthems on these paintings and poems took place on Wed 13 June 2023 at St Stephen, Walbrook, Wren’s church next to Mansion House, London. Tristan sang with the St Andrew’s Choir last year another anthem of his and Graham’s, ‘Elizabeth the Gracious’. 

The recording of the livestream of the concert may be viewed here (starting 16 mins 30 secs in): Graham, Alison and Tristan read the poems and Andrew Earis conducted the Choral Scholars of St Stephen, Walbrook. Will Harmer, and his mother Rachel (a member of St Andrew’s Choir), sang in the concert.

Graham is the co-producer of a film, which is being made by Fugue State Films, of the event and about Tristan Latchford. His article about the film and the concert is here.
