At Your Service
Sunday, May 22nd, 2022 - 33 minutes
A book written 60 years ago, but which remained in manuscript form and was never published, has been lovingly brought to new life by the author's three children, and is launched this week, to coincide with the diamond Jubilee of the present Coventry Cathedral. The book's author is Rev'd Canon Joseph W. Poole who was the first Precentor of the new Cathedral with a special responsibility for planning services there. Considered by his peers to be 'one of the greatest liturgists in the Church of England in this century' his book is a record of some of the complete services he created, plus numerous ideas on different themes, to enrich worship.
His deepest wish was that Coventry Cathedral services would speak to the people in style and language which would be familiar and relevant to them. Gill Poole - one of Canon Poole's three surviving children who worked together on the manuscript, talks about her Father and the ministry which was the inspiration for the book.
