Evensong at Hampton Court’s Chapel Royal

Evensong at Hampton Court’s Chapel Royal

Our Chamber Choir once again sang at the iconic Chapel Royal at Hampton Court Palace in an Evensong service that was uplifting and stirring. Chamber Choir sang the Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis settings by Purcell and in the response settings by Byrd. The anthem ‘Litany To The Holy Spirit’ by Hurford was a particularly beautiful moment as well as ‘O Praise Ye The Lord’, a jubilant hymn with force and energy. Chapel Royal is a significant venue for choral music- both Purcell and Byrd wrote for the chapel as far back as 1572. It was a wonderful experience for Chamber Choir to perform in this inspiring setting and the congregation were keen to congratulate the choirs on their achievement. Hampton Court representatives expressed their admiration for our choir and commented on their professionalism as well as their singing. Our Chamber Choir continue to impress and all singers should be delighted and proud of their accomplishments.
