I try to listen to the CE broadcast at least a few times, but this one really didn't do much for me.

Hi just joined the Forum so a big Hello to everyone...
Went to the Three Choirs Festival in Hereford on Monday as the BBC were recording the service for Wednesday's usual 'live' choral evensong.
The anthem was fantastic.... Wesley's Blessed be the God and Father...
The psalm was 49 which is one of my fav's... although the choirs sung it well , i much prefer the setting by Waimisley... but each to their own i guess....
Hope you enjoy it too

later

Damon

Welcome, Damon! Very Happy
Hope you enjoy participating in the chatter on this forum.

I will look forward to Evensong this week. In spite of being an old war horse amongst anthems, I still count Blessed be the God as one of my favorites.Cool

Cheers

Lance

Great evensong this week from the Three Choirs Festival at Hereford. Beautiful singing and some fine organ playing. Very Happy

Just the way I like my evensongs served up!

Those who are up early on Sunday morning (13 August) can hear my choir (St John's, Edinburgh) "live" on Radio 4 at 8.10am.

Sanders' Jubilate and Kodaly's Sanctus from Missa Brevis. Not heard it yet so fingers crossed!

Ah, indeed. What treat is was! Walmisley in Bb was fun of course and I've always loved the Wesley. (There is a great recording from Truro, BTW.)

I attended a very "festal" Evensong at Hereford Cathedral last May and it was a pleasure to witness the immaculate music making of Geraint Bowen and Peter Dyke. I've met Mr. Dyke- a fine chap.

Cheers!

I will certainly listen, and thanks for the advice Very Happy
I am currently listening to last weeks service from Charterhouse School, Surrey. Its rather good, and you can follow a script of the service too.

The Sanders' Jubilate was the pick of the music from this service. Sounded like the choir was enjoying their performance!

Evensong from St.Mary's Episcopal Cathedral Edinburgh certainly showed that those folks north of the border can put on a fine service! Loved the Bruckner and the Gorecki. Very Happy

Yes, wasn't it a wonderful Evensong? I've always loved the Kelly setting...

Anecdote: I went to an Evensong at St. Mary's several years ago. Between the Magnificat and second reading, the fire alarm went off! No one was really sure was to do until the Dean announced in a wobbly Scottish-accented voice: "we should probably evacuate". So the men and boys choir headed off somewhere past the high altar, the rest of us made for the western exits... then the alarm ceased. Everybody went back to their seats, the second reading commenced and all was well. Laughing

I probably would have evacuated something else if I'd been there Mr. Green Mr. Green

Anyone listen to the latest CE on BBC 3? I rather enjoyed it, especially the Wills service on plainsong tones. Splendid. I also didn't realize Wills is still living- he just turned 80.

I thought the service was very fine, and what a marvellous setting from Dr.Wills Exclamation To think that he wrote this piece 31 years ago...it should be better known, I would have thought.

Next week's service comes from St.Patrick's Cathedral, Armagh, the choir being the 2006 Charles Wood Summer School. You may have heard them last Sunday on BBC4. Some lovely singing,IMHO Smile

Nice to notice the forum revving up again after a rather quiet holiday period.

Cheers

I enjoy reading all comments posted here about CE, though I rarely get the chance to listen to it myself these days. Occasionally I need to 'work from home' on a Wednesday afternoon, and -- by complete coincidence, naturally -- this just happens to be the day a favourite choir is singing, or a favourite canticle setting being done. I've never managed to get the BBC Radio Player to work (probably disabled on my office machine?), so I guess I'm stuck until I get broadband at home Crying or Very sad . Anyway, keep posting!
