Music Sunday invitation for Waikato choristers.
NOTES Editor, Dr Ray Harlow, extends an invitation to all on behalf of the Waikato Branch.
This year (a bit later than the rest of the world) the Waikato branch is celebrating Music Sunday by singing Evensong with the St Peter’s Cathedral Choir at 5.00p.m. on 22nd July at St Peter’s Cathedral in Hamilton.
The music will be as follows:
Versicles and responses: ferial (this is a very straightforward and easy setting)
Psalm 63 (Anglican chant, which we’ll learn on the day)
Magnificat and Nunc dimittis: Morley Faux-bourdon (a partly harmonised plainsong setting)
Anthem: R Vaughan-Williams ‘O Clap Your Hands’
We’ll meet at St Peter’s at 3.00p.m. to learn these pieces and all music will be available on the day. If you would like to look at the Morley and V-W pieces ahead of time, they can be found at;
See you there.
