For CE I alternate between the Abbey, St. Paul's and Southwark- time and work schedule permitting. Also I try to keep an eye out for what's going on musically at other London churches, e.g. Westminster Cathedral. The internet makes this so simple!

I've had church music training, but I currently work in The City. I'm one of the youngest employees at the bank! Perhaps it is not what I originally wanted to do with my life, yet I'm not tied down to a church and am able to travel around and visit other UK cathedrals. Next month I hope to return to Hereford, a particular favourite.

Cheers!

Work is going okay- I'm still there of course and sneaking a peak at the forum. CE at the Abbey looks cool- they're doing the Tompkins Fifth Service, so I might breeze by to catch that.

Tom, since this thread has gone way off topic, perhaps we should start a new one.

I try to make as many CE's as possible, but sometimes I just wanna go home after work! A waffle thread- that's a new term to me. What is it?

You're ahead of me: what's the "listen again thingy"? If you want to start a waffle here, we'll need to keep it on church music. But of course that's our major interest, isn't it?

Hello Tom,

That url you gave me looks great. However, I use a Mac so I need to download (if possible) some of the programs to listen. I'll work on it later this evening- alas, I have found that some of the programs are only available in Windows.

How about a new topic: Tom & Jason's Church Music Waffle ? Anybody could join the thread, but that way we could toss around church music chat.

Cheers
Jason
