This retrospective webcast of Choral Evensong features Mendelssohn's Ave Maria and Philip Moore's John Scott Service.

Philip Moore succeeded Francis Jackson as Organist and Master of the Music at York Minster in 1983 and during his musical career has written a number of compositions including Lo! God is here! which was written for John Scott and the choir of St. Paul's Cathedral. These canticles were composed by Philip Moore in memory of John Scott, former Organ Student of St. John's College from 1974 to 1978.
