Recorded on
Saturday, 30 October 2021

Due to the global pandemic, the choir of 2019-20 were unable to sing the farewell service they would have in a normal year, but in this service the choir from that academic year were reunited to sing a final service together. Both the back row, choristers and organ scholars were brought back together to sing this service, which includes the Howells St Paul's Canticles followed by the anthem, Give Unto the Lord, Elgar.

Winner of the 2008 Ivor Novello Award for classical music, Jonathan Dove CBE has composed a broad range of works and is one of the most successful British composers today. 

Jonathan was kind enough to share insights into his St John's Service, the compositional process, and what we can look forward to in the future.

The commitment, projection and natural energy of this choir have never failed to inspire me
