Previous Concert
 
   
The choir’s Cathedral visit in 2021 will be their first to Lincoln Cathedral, and will be their twelfth different Cathedral visited to sing Choral Evensong since 2011.

The visit falls just after the Church marks Trinity Sunday, and the choir are proposing to sing as the anthem Sir John Stainer’s (1840-1901) remarkable anthem, I saw the Lord.
 
O Trinity! O Unity!
Be present as we worship Thee,
And with the songs that angels sing
Unite the hymns of praise we bring!

After a number of visits singing Henry Smart’s (1813-79) Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis in Bb, the choir will sing Charles Wood’s (1866-1926) Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis in F, scored for double choir and organ and written in 1915 for the choir of King’s College, Cambridge. The choir will have featured this in a concert of music by Elgar and his contemporaries earlier in the year.

Please note that this proposed music list is subject to approval by the Cathedral, which will be some time early in 2021.
