This Sunday, the Royal School of Church Music is holding RSCM Music Sunday, when we celebrate the work of our church musicians across the UK. Here at St Peter’s we will be marking the day with a Come & Sing Choral Evensong. Everyone is welcome, young and old. All voice parts welcome! Music will include truly glorious works from the Anglican choral repertoire – the wonderful setting of the Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis in C by Irishman Charles Villiers Stanford, and the magnificent Evening Hymn by the English composer Henry Balfour Gardiner, a 1908 setting of the ancient compline hymn Te lucis ante terminum.
Please do let us know if you wish to join in, so we have an idea of numbers for catering purposes as there will be refreshments in between the rehearsal and the service.
Canticles: Stanford in C
Anthem: Evening Hymn – H Balfour Gardiner
