Featured Choral Evensong from Wednesday, March 27, 2019

The Annunciation

This week’s featured Choral Evensong was sung by the Trinity Chamber Singers on March 27, 2019, when we observed the Feast of the Annunciation. The Very Rev. Bernard J. Owens, Dean of Trinity Cathedral, was homilist for that service.

The Preces and Responses are sung to a setting by Martin Neary (b. 1940) who, during his distinguished career, was Organist at Winchester Cathedral and Westminster Abbey. The Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis are set to a unique “Chant setting” by Samuel Sebastian Wesley (1810-1876), a member of the famous Wesley family of clergy and musicians. The anthem is the sublime Ave Maria by Franz Biebl (1906-2001), unfortunately truncated in this recording due to technical problems.
