Whilst we are in the early stages of reopening for worship, starting on 5th July, the support we give to others and the costs of the church remains the same.
If you are able to, please click on the 'Give a Little' picture above to donate to St Oswald's as you might have done in the service.
Thank you all for the many ways in which you already give. We are grateful.

The music selcted to accompany this service includes the hymn Just as I am without one plea and two soloviolin pieces, played by Ann from a sonata by Tartini.

Ann says 

“I have been looking forward for many months to playing for live services at St Oswald’s and am hoping that this coming Sunday’s will be the first of many more to come. At the moment, because singig is not permitted I have been thinking about how to provide music which is meaningful and uplifting but which does not have words. For this I have been inspired by the Italian Baroque violinist composer Giuseppe Tartini, who died exactly 250 years ago in 1770. Tartini was employed for over 40 years by the Basilica of St Anthony of Padua, in Padua itself, and a whole orchestra were employed to play his concertos and possibly other instrumental pieces during services. St Anthony was revered as a particularly eloquent preacher whose sermons were so meaningful that, according to legend, even the fishes would listen to him preach. Tartini seems to have been inspired by this non-verbal communication and aimed to write meaningful music without text for performance in the liturgical context of Masses at the church. This week I have chosen part of a sonata by Tartini (attached) which is one of his solo violin pieces. Although it is not specifically a church piece, it contains, like several other sonatas by Tartini, a short fragment of poetry which indicates his “emotional intent”: the words “My love will be constant, my heart will be faithful” are used as a heading for one of the movements. I am hoping that these will provide sufficient musical inspiration for today’s service.”
