ST PaulsUROn Monday 30 April 2018, the choir sang Choral Evensong at St. Paul’s Cathedral. Cecilia McDowall’s Preces and Responses in D were performed together with her St Martin’s Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis. For the first time in the cathedral’s history, all the music for the choir’s Choral evensong at St Paul’s Cathedral at the end of April, was by female composers, including Celia McDowall and Roxanna Panufnik whose Love Endureth was performed by the choir as the anthem. The soprano solo by Maria Marshall, one the choir’s 2018 choral scholars, was particularly memorable in the great space of the cathedral.

Love Endureth sm PosterThe Esterhazy singers took this theme, with Palm Sunday and Holy Week in mind, for their spring 2018 concert. The theme of the  concert was the enduring power of spiritual love; imaginatively chosen music showed how it has inspired composers through the centuries. The old masters Byrd, Gibbons and Weelkes rubbed shoulders with modern composers Olivier Messaien, Roxanna Panufnik, Naji Hakim and Jan Rautio. The Esterhazys' Musical Director Andrea Brown was accomanpanied on the organ by Oliver Lallemant. An enthusiastic audience enjoyed this imaginative mix of old and new pieces, which culminated in the Esterhazy-commissioned world premiere of ‘Honor, Laus and Gloria’ by Jan Rautio.’
