Sunday 18th September 2016 at 6pm
The second of our Choral Evensongs at St Michael’s Church takes place on Sunday 18th September, when the music will be led by the Octagon Singers from Ely Cathedral. Ely Cathedral Octagon Singers (ECOS) was founded in September 2006. Open to all singers aged 16 and over, it is a voluntary choir which complements the work of the Cathedral’s full-time choirs, singing on an occasional basis at Evensong, Sunday Eucharist, and many other special services in the Cathedral’s calendar. They will be conducted by Edmund Aldhouse (Assistant Organist of Ely Cathedral) who has been Director of ECOS since February 2015.
The canticles will be sung to the setting by Ralph Vaughan Williams, and anthem is a setting of words from St John’s Gospel, “I give you a new commandment”, music by Peter Nardone.
We welcome as our preacher, Reverend Canon Tim Alban Jones, Chaplain to the Bishop of Peterborough.
We invite you to join us for refreshments after the service, which starts at 6pm.
