The Gavin Bryars Ensemble will play Jesus’ Blood Never Failed Me Yet for the annual service of memorial at St Martin in the Fields for those who died homeless in the previous year. We did this in 2018 and it was an extraordinarily moving experience. This year, as previously, we will be joined by the Choir With No Name, made up of homeless people. But because of the Covid-related rules for the number of people allowed to gather, this will take place four times: at 11am, 11:30, midday and 12:30. During the service the names of those who died are read out, and members of the congregation each take a card, bearing the name of one person for them to remember during the year to come.
