Frank Cottrell Boyce

The Rev. Lucy Winkett
Formerly Canon Precentor at St Paul’s Cathedral, Lucy Winkett is now Rector of St James’s, Piccadilly. She talks of the parallels between the turbulent historical context in which the King James Bible was written and the Easter Story contained within its text.
BBC presenter and journalist, Katie Derham, is one of many well known public figures who has lent her support to the King James Bible Trust. She talks of the lexicology of the King James Bible the freshness of the language and how composers have used its texts to set to music.
Chris Totney is Assistant Director of Music at Dauntseys School in Wiltshire and organist and choirmaster at St John’s Church in Devizes. His anthem, The Mystery of Christ (a composition for non-professional choirs setting texts from the books of Isaiah, Revelation and Colossians) won the King James Bible Composition Awards. The awards were organized by the King James Bible Trust in collaboration with The Royal College of Music, the Royal School of Church Music and Westminster Abbey. The anthem will be published by the Royal School of Church Music.
Donald Jackson is Senior Scribe to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth’s Crown Office at the House of Lords. He and his team at the Scriptorium in Monmouthshire have recently completed the first hand-written and illuminated bible in 500 years, the Saint John’s Bible, which was commissioned by the Benedictine Monastery of Saint John's in Collegeville, Minnesota, USA.
Donald talks of how this was a life-long ambition for him and by immersing himself in the project made him realise how ‘pin-sharp’ and relevant the stories are.
The bible is homed at the Hill Museum & Manuscript Library on the campus of Saint John's University.
