Just a few days before our visit to Peterborough Cathedral the church’s calendar will have celebrated the Ascension of Jesus, and as such our music is festive, exuberant, and suitable for this ’season’.

The canticles sung at the service are Henry Smart's (1813-79) dramatic Evening Service in Bb with its fanfare introduction, the Preces and Responses by Humphrey Clucas (b. 1941), and the anthem is Sing praise to God who reigns above, a dramatic anthem composed by Dr Francis Jackson, who died earlier this year at the age of 104.
