This Evensong fell on the eve of Ascension Day last term. In acknowledgement of this feast, the Choir sang the Ascensiontide motet Viri Galilaei as the Anthem in a setting by William Byrd.
In their first ever album dedicated solely to the Evening Canticles (Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis), the Choir of St John’s College, Cambridge releases Magnificat, a celebration of their daily tradition of choral Evensong.
The Choir of St John’s' new album - Magnificat - celebrates their daily tradition of choral Evensong and is released on 25 October 2019.
