Next evensong(s): Dyson in D

We’ll soon be singing the D major evensong setting by George Dyson at two successive services: 5pm Saturday 12 November at Pilgrim and 6pm Sunday 13 November at St Peter’s Cathedral. We’ll be taking this setting on our Tour of English Cathedrals departing Boxing Day, and will be singing it in Hereford Cathedral and York Minster. It’s a wonderful combination of a joyous, rollicking Magnificat followed by a tender, contemplative Nunc dimittis. Here is a clip of the spectacular ending of the Magnificat from a recent service.
