When TCS take part in Choral Evensong in Truro Cathedral on 6th November it will be the first time we have done so in our 53-year history. We will join Truro Cathedral Choir to sing Parry’s “I was glad” and Stanford’s Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis in C. The service commences at 5.30pm, with Christopher Gray as Music Director.
The Cathedral Choir is made up of 18 boy choristers and 12 men. With over 100 members of TCS joining them and the accompaniment of the 2,700-pipe Henry Willis organ, this should be a memorable occasion.
The normal running order of Evensong is: responses, welcome by the priest, psalm, bible reading, Magnificat, bible reading, Nunc Dimittis, the Creed, responses (including the Lord’s Prayer), anthem, prayers, hymn and, finally, responses.
Anyone is welcome to attend Evensong, so come and enjoy the beautiful music and the amazing architecture of the Cathedral. We have loved rehearsing these pieces and are very much looking forward to taking part in the service.
