Old Saint Paul’s Festival Evensongs (Old Saint Pauls’ Music)

By | Published on Saturday 27 August 2011

There aren’t many sounds more spine tingling than that of a church choir, even during a quiet Sunday evening service. Performing a range of hymns, canticles and anthems, the choir filled the church with their mighty sound, from roaring bass to piercing soprano. Accompanied by readings from the book of Kings and the book of John, the choir recited every word with gravitas and created a spiritual atmosphere for those who had come for some quiet prayer. As far as church choirs go, they sound exactly as they should, pure and angelic, nothing more and nothing less. A good choice for a Sunday evening church service or if you’re just really enthusiastic about church choirs in general.

Old Saint Paul’s Church, 14, 21, 28 Aug, 6.30pm (7.45pm), free, fpp214.
