Evensong at Coventry Cathedral

Evensong at Coventry Cathedral

Posted: 02/04/2019

On Tuesday 26th March, a 50-strong choir comprising members of the Senior Chapel Choir and Year 8 singers ventured to sing Evensong at Coventry Cathedral.

The annual tradition of singing in one of the UK’s cathedrals is always a joyous occasion. Coventry’s architecture, with its war-torn ruins and post-war revival in perfect juxtaposition was an ideal space to sing music spanning the centuries.

Lenten plainsong responses sat alongside music by Charles Stanford – the anthem was Oh for a closer walk with God – and William Mathias – the frenzied Magnificat from the Jesus College Service, making full use of the vast organ and wonderful acoustic. Quite a remarkable occasion, and one which we hope will live in the minds of those in attendance for some time.
