Trinity 17 online music
This week's exit music is by the English composer Eric Coates (1886-1957). He wrote many many pieces which have come to be remembered by listeners of a certain age group reflecting a time earlier in the twentieth century when on the surface of things, life seemed altogether simpler. He is best known for "The Dam Busters March" and "By the Sleepy Lagoon" (Desert Island Disks) but this piece is called "In a Country Lane" and written on November 13th 1918; what a thought-provoking time to compose something so apparently carefree.Martin

A Church of England resource with a selection of hymns, reflections and prayers for those not on the internet.  The service is supported by the Church of England nationally as well as through the Connections group based at Holy Trinity Claygate in Surrey and the Christian charity Faith in Later Life. Although thousands of churches across the country are now running services and prayer groups online while public worship remains suspended, many people – especially older people – do not have access to the internet. The line also recognises the impact of social distancing restrictions and self-isolation measures on those suffering from loneliness.
