Previous Concert
 
   
The choir are delighted to have been invited to sing Choral Evensong at Southwell Minster on the eve of St Luke’s Day. The service begins at 5:30pm. As St Luke is physicians and surgeons, and is commonly associated with healing, we are looking forward to singing Bruckner’s motet Os justi meditabitur sapientiam (which features in our concert earlier in the year on 27 June), which includes the most suitable lines:
 
I have found David, my servant. I have anointed him with my holy oil. Alleluia.

As with other visits, the remainder of the programme includes music from our ‘touring’ repertoire - Henry Smart’s neglected masterpiece, the Evening Service in Bb, and a set of Preces and Responses by our own Musical Director, written for a massed voices Festival in the Diocese of Peterborough.
