The Priory Voices are singing the services on 5th/6th November in Wells Cathedral and I am accompanying on the organ. Evensong on the Saturday (Stanford in B flat and Wesley’s Wash me throughly) will be followed by three Sunday services: Choral Eucharist (Mass for St Mark by Judith Ward with Sicut servus by Palestrina); Matins (Canticles: Ireland in F with anthem Pater Peccavi by Lobo) and Evensong (Murrill in E and I saw a new heaven by Bainton). Rose Responses and hymns and psalms in addition, too, plus voluntaries by JS Bach BWV 547 and BWV 573, CS Lang Prelude and Fugue in G minor and Whitlock Fanfare. You’ll have to come to Wells to identify the pre-service music!
