Featured Choral Evensong from Wednesday, April 25, 2018

St. Mark the Evangelist

This week’s featured Evensong was sung by the Cathedral Choir on April 25, 2018, when we commemorated St. Mark the Evangelist. The Rt. Rev’d Arthur Williams, our dear friend and colleague, was the homilist that evening.

The Preces and Responses were sung to the beautiful setting by American composer, Craig Phillips (b. 1961). A graduate of the Eastman School of Music in Rochester NY, Craig serves as Director of Music at All Saints’ Church in Beverly Hills, CA.  The Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis were sung to the setting by Englishman Bryan Kelly (b. 1934). Written in the 1960’s, this setting was quite innovative for its time, and quickly became a favorite of singers and listeners alike. The anthem that evening was Sir Edward Bairstow’s memorably beautiful setting of “I sat down under his shadow,” the text from the Song of Solomon 2:3-4.  Bairstow served as musician at England’s York Minster for over 30 years, and was one of the iconic figures in English church music of the early 20th century.
