    Tonight’s Choral Evensong, is being replaced with a special Christian Aid service for Harvest, sung by those singers who have gathered at the Cathedral this afternoon for a “Big Sing” event.

    This service of readings, prayers and music from around the world will be preceded by tea and cake  – all being sold to support Christian Aid’s Harvest appeal.  All are welcome to come and enjoy!

    Please come and sit in the Quire (the seats nearest the High Altar) where the service sheets may be found – Or if you prefer simply to listen, you are very welcome just to sit in the pews.

    This Sunday to celebrate the feast of Pentecost, Kris Thomsett, Acting Director of Music, will be performing Duruflé’s Choral Variations on Veni Creator, interspersed with the plainchant being sung by the Lay Clerks. The piece is the final movement of Duruflé’s ‘Prélude, Adagio et Choral varié sur le thème du Veni Creator, Op.4, a monumental organ work based on the plainchant ‘Veni Creator’ (Come Holy Ghost). The variations start with a harmonised chorale of the chant, and then go on to use the different colours of the organ, from soft strings and flutes to the thundering sound of full organ. Between each variation, the Lay Clerks will sing a verse of the plainchant with the final toccata-like variation covering the procession into the Quire to mark the start of Choral Evensong for Pentecost.
