Following unforgettable performances of Billy Budd last summer, Ryan Wigglesworth returns to conduct Berlioz’s thrilling opera La Damnation de Faust, starring tenor Peter Hoare and baritone Alan Opie.   The opening concert sees Debussy’s ravishing Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune, Charles Owen plays Ravel’s piano concerto in G major and Aidan Oliver conducts Elgar’s Music Makers, with mezzo soprano Susan Bickley. Our Truro Cathedral programme includes Elgar’s cello concerto, with cellist Timothy Gill and Mozart’s Requiem. Other works featured in the festival include Mahler’s Symphony No 4, Bruckner’s Adagio from his string quintet (arr. string orchestra), Tchaikovsky’s piano trio, Brahms’ clarinet quintet and a late night Broadway extravagana with the Festival Chorus and the “Endellion Little BigBand”.

St Minver Pet Service

In what is thought to be a first for St Minver, the Pet Blessing Service on 10 June brought together people of all ages including the choir from the St Minver Primary school, many with their pets. The Service, led by Marcus Jones, encouraged people to praise all of God’s creation and to give thanks for the joys and responsibilities of owning a pet as well as remembering all those, like vets, who care
for animals.

All the congregation including the pets, mostly dogs but also a cat, guinea pigs and even newts, seemed appreciative and were well behaved. Certainly none of them disturbed
the harmony by attacking another!

Reference was made to St Francis of Assisi whose respect for all creatures as sharing, alongside the human race, in God’s love, helped to change traditional Christian teaching to accept the universality of the natural world and our interdependence.

Part of the collection, just under £100, was given to the St Francis Home for Animals, a dog rescue centre near Newquay that takes in stray and other unwanted dogs, cares for them and places them with suitable new owners to provide them with a happy home for life. The Home has thanked the Church for their generosity and for promoting love and respect for our fellow creatures.

This year it is a week earlier than usual so that it doesn’t clash with ‘Camel week’.
