West Dorset was the destination for the boys and men of the Abbey Choir on Sunday 1 May, when they joined forces with Sherborne Abbey Choir to sing Choral Evensong.
The music comprised the Evening Service in B Minor by Thomas Tertius Noble, Let all the world in every corner sing by Ralph Vaughan Williams, and the Responses by Kenneth Leighton. It was conducted by Paul Ellis, Director of Music at Sherborne Abbey; Canon Eric Woods, Vicar of Sherborne, presided. Afterwards, the choirs processed outside for a photo to mark the occasion.
Sherborne Mother’s Union and parents of its Abbey Choristers kindly provided tea before the service. Sherborne Abbey Choir will pay a return visit in November.
