Chapel Choir at St. Paul’s Cathedral

At the invitation of St. Paul’s Cathedral, the Chapel Choir returned to perform and conduct Evensong.  The building, with its famous dome, is one of the most iconic landmarks in Europe, designed by Sir Christopher Wren and built between 1675 and 1710.  It was filled with hundreds of visitors from around the world coming in to hear the service.  

The Choir, under the direction of Director of Music Mr Howard Ebden, and organist Mr Simon Winters, demonstrated their ability to perform with such zeal, maturity and professional poise.  The Shephard Responses and Psalms resonated with glorious beauty and clarity that exuded understanding way beyond their years.  The Canticles, The Gloucester Service by Herbert Howells, a harmonic stalwart in the Anglican repertoire, was sung with conviction while the double motet Faire as the Heaven provided the controlled beauty and shade required of such a colossal acoustic.
