The choir of Merton College sang Evensong in Winchester Cathedral on Wednesday 4th March. They were directed by myself and Ben Nicholas. The lessons were read by Simon Jones, College Chaplain, and by the Dean of Winchester. The music, which was not recorded, was:
Canticles: Magnificat (Pärt); Nunc Dimittis (Holst)
Anthem: Versa est in luctum (Alonso Lobo)
A reception was held afterwards at the house of Elizabeth and Ian Skeet. It was the first time in many years that I had returned to the city where I grew up. The choir of Merton will be recording a podcast this coming Wednesday, March 11th, details to follow.
