In early 1972 my parents  moved to Zeist in Holland, and brought my brothers, sister and me with them. Holy Trinity Church featured little in our lives at that time; we usually did go to midnight mass, but no more than that.

Later, when I was studying in Utrecht it featured more, but I did not become a regular until I had sung in two Gilbert and Sullivan productions. The connection with the church was that the Klein Opera Koor Wilhelminapark, with which I started my singing, practiced in the church. Singing turned out to be my way back to regular church worship. From the early eighties when my parents bought an LP of King’s College Choir, to now,  singing has never lost it’s importance.

Having been in this post since the second half of 2017, I regularly find it a challenge, but the challenges and variety is something I thrive on.  It is also a privilege to work in a place which carries so much meaning. And of course, I welcome any excuse to speak English. It is my aim to serve faithfully and to the best of my ability.
