Philip Posted May 26, 2010 Share Posted May 26, 2010 I'm just making my way through this week's R3 broadcast on iPlayer, and was intrigued to hear the dismissal come immediately at the conclusion of the office. This is probably correct, because Evening Prayer itself finishes after the collects I believe (someone will correct me if I'm wrong I'm sure), but most places do reserve the dismissal for the very end of the service. Is the practice adopted by Magdalen common? As to the rest of the service, it largely depends if you like Stanford I guess! I do sometimes think that the R3 broadcasts include rather more repertoire from off the beaten track than they might and so it was nice to hear some familiar pieces sung well. All the Stanford evening services are lovely in their own way, and fully deserve to be heard. I do also like the anthem 'O for a closer walk with God' a lot and the organ Postlude is a good romp too.
