A prestigious American choir visited a Dereham church last week as part of their pilgrimage around the area.

The Taylor Episcopal Choir performed a concert at St Nicholas Church in Dereham, where they played their inspirational music to local churchgoers.

The choir has also visited other churches in the area, which included singing evensong at Norwich Cathedral during last week.

Simon Jacobs, organist and choirmaster, is originally from England having been a chorister at Truro Cathedral and organ scholar at Salisbury Cathedral and Westminster Cathedral.

He then filled several posts in America before joining the prestigious Taylor Choir in May this year.

Scott Christiansen conducted the choir and played an organ solo during the evening.

Evelyn Speed of St Nicholas Church said: “The standard of singing and organ playing was exceptional. It was a great privilege to host such an entourage in Dereham.”
