Following our visit to St Paul's Cathedral in May 2023, the Northampton Bach Choir are delighted to be singing at Southwark Cathedral on a day where the Cathedral also hosts its Friends AGM.

The programme listed below is subject to confirmation. Our programming for cathedral visits continues to be guided by bringing things which are not regularly sung in the repertoire of cathedral choirs where possible.

Over the 2022/23 season we are featuring music which expands the canon, and in our Choral Evensong visits we sing the Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis by mixed-race composer Samuel Coleridge-Taylor (1875-1912) who was born in Holborn (less than a mile from St Paul’s Cathedral) and lived for most of his life in Croydon (which is in the Diocese of Southwark). The anthem is a setting of Psalm 150 by legendary Canadian composer and pianist Ruth Watson Henderson (b. 1932), and the Responses are by Humphrey Clucas (b. 1941), written when the composer was an undergraduate and choral scholar at King’s College, Cambridge.
