This week’s featured podcast is from April 3, 2019.
This Evensong service was sung during Lent, 2019. The Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis are the expressive yet economical “Short Service” by the great English composer, Thomas Tallis. Edgar Bainton’s anthem “Christ in the Wilderness” sets an unusually vivid poem by Robert Graves written in 1918, the first year of the 1918-19 Spanish flu pandemic.
