August 31st: A Very Special Choral Evensong by Christopher Wilson

At the end of this month, at Saint Andrew’s Church in Fort Worth, will be the first Choral Evensong coming out of the choir’s summer break, and a very special one at that!

Our own chorister and composer Christopher Wilson has been penning a complete setting for an Evensong service for several years, the “Preces and Responses” of which the choir took to perform in Salisbury Cathedral in the summer of 2013.

On August 31, at 5pm, the Choir of Saint Andrew’s will present Mr. Wilson’s Evensong setting in full, with a premiere of his “Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis,” a new anthem setting of “Ave Maria,” and a new Psalm setting.

The choir is very excited about this coming Evensong, and we dearly hope to see you there!
