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 our first ever album dedicated solely to the Evening Canticles (Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis), we have released Magnificat.
Our sister choir has recorded an album of music by William Mathias in collaboration with the Gentlemen of St John's
