Evensong Live 2019: Anthems and Canticles

A glorious collection of choral music by British composers, recorded live during services of Choral Evensong in King’s College Chapel.

A glorious collection of choral music by British composers, recorded live during services of Choral Evensong in King’s College Chapel. Popular anthems like Hubert Parry’s I was glad and Patrick Hadley’s My beloved spake are included alongside settings of the Magnificat and Nunc dimittis through the centuries. Included here are settings from Byrd’s Great Service and Weelkes’ Short Service, alongside Stanford’s setting in G and William Mathias’ Jesus College Service.

Recorded between the summers of 2018 and 2019, this selection presents music from Stephen Cleobury’s last year as Director of Music at King’s College after 37 years in post.

The recorded sound is excellent – another fine showcase.
