Featured Choral Evensong from Wednesday, March 20, 2019

Saint Joseph

This week’s featured Choral Evensong was sung by the Trinity Cathedral Choir on March 20, 2019 when we commemorated St. Joseph, with the Rt. Rev. Arthur B. Williams as homilist.

A special musical guest that evening was French hornist Meghan Guegold, who played the prelude (Brahms Intermezzo in A Major) and postlude (Brahms “An die Nachtigall”). Meghan is a graduate of CIM and currently serves as principal horn in both the Akron and Canton Symphonies. The Preces and Responses were sung to the setting by American composer Craig Phillips (b. 1961), director of music at All Saints’ Church in Beverly Hills. The Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis were sung to the famous setting by Thomas Attwood Walmisley (1814-1856), recognized as one of the first settings to include an independent organ part. The anthem was “O pray for the peace of Jerusalem” by Herbert Howells (1892-1983), one of the most characteristic voices in Anglican church music of the 20th century.
