Below are a few videos I’ve found on YouTube which feature some of the music we’ll be doing at Choral Evensong in St Andrew’s Episcopal Cathedral in Aberdeen on Saturday 18th June 2011. They may be useful if some choir members haven’t sung the pieces before. The quality of the singing is a bit varied (although the magnificent Westminster Abbey Choir does feature), but it gives an idea of the notes!
Ayleward Preces, sung by the Trinity Singers of Westbury on Trym Parish Church, Bristol
Ayleward Responses (which for some unknown reason omits the first two Amens), sung by the Trinity Singers of Westbury on Trym Parish Church, Bristol
Harwood in A flat Nunc Dimittis (I couldn’t find the Magnificat) sung by St Andrew’s Schola Cantorum of Pittsburgh USA
Stainer – I saw the Lord, sung by Westminster Abbey Choir
I bind unto myself today (tune: St Patrick’s Breastplate) sung by the choir of Keble College, Oxford
