Featured Choral Evensong from Wednesday, May 16, 2018
Martyrs of Sudan
This week’s featured Choral Evensong was sung by the Trinity Chamber Singers on May 16, 2018. We commemorated the Martyrs of Sudan that evening, with the Rev. Dr. Paul Gaston, former Acting Dean of Trinity Cathedral, as homilist.
That was our final evensong of the 2018 spring season, so the musical menu was an extra rich one for that service. The Responses were sung to the beautifully expressive setting by James Buonemani, resident musician at St. James Episcopal Church in Los Angeles. The canticles were sung to the iconic setting in A major by Charles Villiers Stanford, and the anthem was one of the masterpieces in the Anglican choral repertoire, “Hear my words, ye people,” by Hubert Parry.
