Last weekend, 3-5 August, St Stephen’s Church Choir sang the services at Portsmouth Cathedral. Music included canticles by Stanford, Ireland and Brewer, anthems by Wood, Peeters and Goodall and Widor’s setting of the Mass on Sunday Morning. The weekend also included the world première of ‘Hail, gladdening light’, composed by Stephen Barker, Organist and Choirmaster of St Stephen’s. Full details of the music sung, together with photographs are available on the trip webpage.
Feedback from the Cathedral clergy was very positive, and the Dean asked us not to leave it four years before returning again (it’s four years since our previous visit).
