Watch out for the Billericay Mayflower 400 year commemerations next year.

The Mayflower Pilgrims.

4th July 2020.

 

The choir will perform The Mayflower Pilgrims written by Clive Jenkins.

 

This work was premiered in 2005, at St Andrew’s Church Plymouth, where the Pilgrim Fathers worshipped before setting off on their journey to America.

 

The words for The Mayflower Pilgrims come from William Bradford’s History of Plimouth Plantation and Henry Ainsworth’s The Book of Psalmes.

 

William Bradford was Governor of the colony. He is credited as the first to proclaim what America views as the first Thanksgiving.

 

Henry Ainsworth’s The Book of Psalmes was the source of all the Pilgrim Father’s singing at church assemblies for many years after their arrival in the New World.
