Here is a collection of the blogs and writings of Past Master Richard Christou (Master in 2018).


A new Marketors’ Anthem (Psalm 150 – Praise Ye the Lord), for choir, organ and solo trumpet was composed by the Master’s Consort, Tasoulla Christou, as a gift to the Worshipful Company of Marketors. Given the connection of the Anthem with the Livery, the trumpet at one point plays a quotation from the melody of the grace (from the Laudi Spirituali collection of 1545) which is sung at all of the Company’s Great Events, and at events of many other Livery Companies as well.

The Anthem was first sung, as a World Premiere, by the Choir of St Bride’s, Fleet Street, at the Marketors’ Rededication Service held at the Church on 19th April 2018. The Anthem is available for both the Company and St Bride’s to perform in future whenever they wish.
