Chapel Choir at St Paul's Cathedral
On Monday 16 November, the Chapel Choir were invited to sing Evensong at St Paul’s Cathedral, for the fifth year running. When the Cathedral Choir is on holiday, many visiting choirs from around the world sing Evensong in their place.
The service is the one Cathedral service which is led almost entirely by music, with the Choir singing preces and responses, the psalm for that evening, the Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis of the Canticles and also an anthem.
Readings from the Old and New Testaments are led by the Canon in Residence and the prayers are led by a Minor Canon. St George’s Reverend J. Sistig also joined the readings.
Many people are regulars at Choral Evensong and for many tourists it is a service they come especially to take part in.
Evensong was then followed by a well-deserved pizza across the road from the Cathedral. Well done to all of the girls who gave a superb performance, and thank you to Mr Hillier for organising the trip.
