Why "Aquila"?

  • Aquila is the Latin name for "eagle" and John chose the name, because of a number of coincidences.

  • John's family origins are mostly in Ireland but he did find evidence in North Wales of a Glynn family with a coat of arms sporting a spread eagle.

  • His family home was in Eagle Lane.

  • John's father was a retired employee of Barclays Bank whose emblem is also a spread eagle. After he retired, Mr. Glynn built a small boat that he named "Aquila".

  • The Trust banks with Barclays and the account is held in their premises, called "Aquila House". *John's patron saint is Saint John the Evangelist, whose symbol is also the eagle. 

Profiles of The Trustees

Coleen_in_ball_gown

Coleen Carlile John Glynnís younger sister, Coleen, has watched his music grow over the years and been touched by the poetry in his soul.

As a teacher of English, she strives to awaken in her students that same sense of joy and love that lifts our lives above the ordinary and shows Godís presence in all of us.


Ian Forder is married to Eileen and they have no children.

He is a eucharistic minister, sidesman/passkeeper at New Hall (Springfield Parish) in Chelmsford in the Brentwood Diocese of the UK.

Ian is heavily involved in voluntary community work: he is organiser of drivers for two of the New Hall (School) Voluntary Services [NHVS] activities. They are the Saturday Club, which takes deprived children and entertains them for two hours a week, and Riding for the Disabled. He also drives for both groups. Ian is Vice-chairman of the New Hall Group Riding for the Disabled, and was a Parish Councillor on Springfield Parish Council.

At work, Ian is a specialist in international tax and he has a small consultancy as well as being a director of various companies, with interests ranging from stock-broking to property, from fish farming to renewable energy.

And, if that wasn't enough, he's been Chairman of the Aquila Music Trust since its inception in 1991.

 

Mandy Harman (Flute and backing vocals in Aquila) has played the flute for 25 years.  Her love of music started very young, continued throughout her life and opened many doors for her. She plays at her parish church. She describes herself as the mother of three gorgeous children. She has been a secondary school governor and is Deputy Manager of a bank call centre. She now brings her governance and management skills to the Trust.

 

John Stephenson is a member of St Augustinesís Parish and is also involved with the NHVS.

Christine Glynn Secretary; Christine Thomas (Vocals and Guitar) was born in Barking and now plays guitar and sings at Wickfordís parish church.

She first sang with Fr John as a teenager.  A champion majorette with national stage and TV appearances in the 70ís, she is now a police detective, having joined Essex Police in 1985. 

She met Clive Thomas in 1981 and they have 3 daughters, a son and 4 grandchildren.
