Brian Sharp to be commemorated

Posted: Friday 28th April

Brian Sharp to be commemorated

The family of the late Brian Sharp have arranged for his name to be inscribed in the Book of Remembrance in the Musicians’ Chapel.

The Musicians’ Chapel was established in 1955 in the Church of St Sepulchre-without-Newgate, Holborn, in the City of London, which is the National Musicians’ Church, to commemorate deceased British musicians and to house the Musicians’ Book of Remembrance. The Chapel was established around the grave of Sir Henry Wood, C.H., whose ashes had been interred there a decade earlier. Funds to establish the Chapel were raised by Miss Granger Kerr’s “Carnation” Fund, by a recital by Kathleen Ferrier and Gerald Moore and many other donations.

The purpose of the Musicians’ Chapel is to uphold the memory of British musicians and to maintain the Book of Remembrance. New names are inscribed each year into the Book of Remembrance and an annual Service, open to the public, is held when the new names are read out aloud. These and other events, together with collecting and recording of the names, are organised by the Committee of the Friends of the Musicians’ Chapel – a Registered Charity.

This year’s Annual Service of Thanksgiving in memory of those newly inscribed into the Book of Remembrance in the Musicians’ Chapel will take place at St. Sepulchre’s Church, Holborn Viaduct, London EC1A 2DQ on Tuesday 2nd May 2017 at 6.00 pm, sung by the Choir of the Royal Academy of Music directed by Patrick Russill. The preacher is The Dean of Westminster, The Very Reverend Dr John Hall. Anyone wishing to attend the service would be most welcome.

Anobody wishing to make a donation can get in touch with his grandson Adam adamsharp.uk@icloud.com
