Evensong in Worcester Cathedral

Earlier this week, over sixty members of the choir visited Worcester Cathedral to sing Choral Evensong. Repeating the programme of music we performed at St George’s Chapel, Windsor, earlier in the year, the choir sang a set of Responses, composed by our Director of Music for last year’s Diocesan Choral Festival in Peterborough Cathedral, a setting of the Evening Canticles in C by Bryan Kelly, and the extraordinary setting of Psalm 117 by Marcel Dupré, Laudate Dominum. The Psalms were sung to chants by composers with associations to Worcester, including one lovely chant by Sir Edward Elgar.

It has been the choir’s ambition to add Worcester Cathedral to the ever-increasing list of English Cathedrals where we have sung Choral Evensong, as in 2008 a new Cathedral organ of 57 stops over four manuals and pedals as installed by Northampton organ building firm Kenneth Tickell and Company.
