St John's College Chapel

Evensong features the 'Sitivit anima mea' by David Nunn, Composer and organ voluntary 'Encounters' by Michael Bonaventure, both of which include electronics.

David Nunn was commissioned by the Choir to compose his piece, which was premiered last term. David graduated from Cambridge this year and has begun studying an MMus in Composition at the Royal Academy of Music. He says of the work: "My aim with this piece was to create an immersive environment. The electronics are entirely composed of water samples and pure sine waves, which are combined with freely-chanted text. My hope is that the resultant texture alludes to a God who is at once transcendent and immanent."

There will also be an organ recital with electronics at 6PM, featuring Huw Morgan, lauren Redhead, Michael Bonaventure and Alistair Zaldua.
