DaveHarries Posted November 21, 2010 Share Posted November 21, 2010 Evening all, Attended St. Mary Redcliffe, bristol this evening for the 6:30 Choral Evensong to celebrate the re-inauguration of the 1912 Harrison & Harrison organ after 2 years of restoration work. The music was this: Introit: Locus Iste (Bruckner) Setting: Bairstow in D Hymns: 336, 394, 413 Psalm: 46 Anthem: Hear my words ye people (CHH Parry) Preacher: Rev. Simon Taylor Voluntary: March on Handel's "Lift up your heads" (A. Guilmant) A very good service with the theme of the sermon being music (appropriately enough) and the Anthem, where some parts were done by full choir and some were done by solos, led straight into "O Praise Ye The Lord" although, after the third verse, they went straight into the Amens at the end and missed out verse 4 despite it not being indicated in the order of service that verse 4 would be missed. Ooops! The Guilmant was extremely good and attracted a round of applause afterwards. The organ sounds in very fine voice. There are a few more events coming up in terms of concerts and I have put these in the "Upcoming Recitals" section. Dave Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
