Event description: 

David Hill, conductor

In keeping with a longstanding ISM tradition, the Yale Schola Cantorum will open its concert season with a special Evensong service at Christ Church. This Evening Prayer service, common in the Anglican practice, consists of a series of verses, responses, psalm selections, lessons, canticles, and other prayers, many of which are typically sung. All are invited to participate in the singing of hymns, with arrangements by Christopher Rouse and David Hill, Schola’s principal conductor. Schola’s contribution to the service includes:

William Byrd – Sing Joyfully
Byrd – Preces and Responses
Walter Alcock – Psalm 91
Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina – Magnificat primi toni
Tomás Luis de Victoria – Nunc dimittis
Alonso Lobo – O quam suavis est
