Featured Choral Evensong from Wednesday, November 1, 2017
This week’s featured Evensong is another from our rich store of Evensongs for this special time of year, this one from All Saints’ Day, Nov. 1, 2017.
The Cathedral Choir sang the service, and the homilist was the Rev. Dr. Shawnthea Monoe, former Senior Pastor of Plymouth Church in Shaker Heights.
The Introit is the concluding “Requiem aeternam” from A Short Requiem by Sir Walford Davies. The Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis are sung to the “Trinity Service” setting, written for us by American composer David Conte (b. 1955). David grew up in Lakewood, Ohio, and has spent most of his career teaching at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. The anthem is “O thou sweetest source,” a wonderful work by Irish composer Charles Wood (1866-1926).
