Previous Concert
 
   
The music selected for the service of Choral Evensong at St Edmundsbury Cathedral is largely the same as at our earlier visit in 2022, which is to Peterborough Cathedral on Saturday 28 May.

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 our Musical Director, and the anthem is Francis Jackson’s vivid setting of Sing praise to God who reigns above, composed for Exeter Cathedral Voluntary Choir in 1981.

Programme:

Northampton Bach Choir
Organist
- Ivan Linford
Conductor - Lee Dunleavy

Dunleavy - Preces and Responses
