He is renowned for his beautiful choral music, including many settings of traditional Latin and English prayers and hymns. Holy Saviour Church choir regularly include works by Stopford in their repertoire.
Philip will lead 60 singers through a wide selection of his music during the day, and we will end the day with a short ‘informal’ performance at 4.30pm, to which friends and family are welcome.
