Evensong at Jesus College, Cambridge

Jesus College, Cambridge

Our Chapel Choir has travelled down to Cambridge for a joint Evensong service with the internationally renowned choir of Jesus College.

Jesus College’s choral scholars met our pupils for tea and showed them around the college before a joint rehearsal in the Chapel, led by their Director of Music Mark Williams.

The service was a great success, with a fabulous joint sound from the two choirs throughout. The repertoire was challenging, with Kenneth Leighton’s Responses, Francis Jackson’s Evening Service in G and Stanford’s beautiful motet Beati Quorum Via.

Paul Miles-Kingston, Director of Music, said: “It was a great privilege to be with the Jesus College choir for this service and I was delighted to be able to direct the canticles composed by former Minster organist Francis Jackson, which brought a little of York with us. Our pupils were really warmly received and have had a wonderful experience.”
