Magnificat & Nunc Dimittis - Purcell
The Conductor: John Bence, Organist and Master of the Music of St. Mary de Castro

Details: After detailed study, we shall sing the traditional service of Evening Prayer. The event will conclude with tea and cake. The anthem will be a tribute to the Queen in her 90th birthday year and will include the 5 part setting of the responses by Tallis and Byrd's anthem: "O Lord, make thy servant Elizabeth Queen."
For the nervous singer: We have a few copies of the Mass available for free loan for a month before the Mass.

Who Can Join us?: Anyone who can sing. Music will be provided on the day. Reasonable sight reading skills are desirable, but there will be some who know the music already.
