Evensong to be broadcast live by BBC Radio 3

Choral Evensong will be broadcast live from Westminster Abbey by BBC Radio 3 on Wednesday 2 October at 3.30pm.

The Choir of Westminster Abbey will be conducted by James O’Donnell, Organist and Master of the Choristers. The organ will be played by Daniel Cook, Sub-Organist.

All are welcome to attend but should be seated by 3.15pm

Music will include:

Introit: Holy is the true light (Gabriel Jackson – first broadcast performance)
Responses: Kenneth Leighton
Psalms: 19 (Edward Hopkins)
First Lesson: Hosea 14
Canticles: Great Service (Hubert Parry)
Second Lesson: St Luke 2:29–32
Anthem: Give unto the Lord (Edward Elgar)
Hymn: Let all the world (Luckington)
Organ Voluntary: Fantasia Op 136 (York Bowen)

You are surrounded by history at the Abbey, not like a museum where it’s just displayed, but here you are standing where history has happened.
