On Saturday 20 November at 5.30 pm, we sang in Winchester Cathedral. The music comprised Psalm 104, Percy Whitlock’s Evening Service in D and Herbert Sumsion’s colourful anthem, They that go down to the sea in ships. It was our first visit there for several years.
We were grateful both for the welcome from the clergy and to the friends of the choir who turned out to support us. We now focus in earnest on the Christmas season, which begins in earnest with the Advent Procession service at 6.30 pm on Sunday 28 November.
