Stephen Tanner came to interview on Monday and he and the interview panel agreed that this seems to be the right thing at the right time for both parties. Stephen will take his first choir practice this Friday evening and is also available to play for us this Sunday morning. A man of huge experience, being assistant organist at Exeter Cathedral, and Director of music at Exeter cathedral school (he taught Chris Martin of Coldplay fame), he directs choirs with an international reputation. “Isca voices” have performed both at Notre Dame in Paris and St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome. We are happy to welcome Stephen to the Raleigh Mission community.
