W2016-07-26-18-24-01-1orcester Cathedral Residency

In July 2016 Holy Trinity choir was invited to a week’s residency singing four choral evensongs at Worcester Cathedral. Led by Chris Thomas in his last month as Director of Music at Holy Trinity, the choir was made up of voices principally from Holy Trinity Geneva with former members and other friends. Members stayed in excellent accommodation on two of the Worcester University campuses.

The magnificent cathedral dating from the 10th century houses the tombs of King John and Prince Arthur, elder brother of Henry, later King Henry VIII. It is not known when daily sung services started in the Cathedral, however it was clearly a flourishing musical centre from at least the thirteenth century. The present organ was installed in 2008 and has 55 stops and 4 manuals compared to the 18 stops and 2 manuals at Holy Trinity.

The choir rehearsed daily, with two mornings free, and processed to sing evensong Monday to Thursday. Among other music the choir sang responses by John Sanders, who Mark Charles knew when he was organist at Gloucester Cathedral, and settings of the Magnificat & Nunc Dimittis by Sumsion, also a former organist at Gloucester. The anthems included ‘O where shall wisdom be found’ by Boyce with five soloists from the choir. Organ voluntaries were played by Chris Thomas, Mark Charles, Mark Jones & Nicolas Deriaz.

On the final evening of the residency the choir were presented with a framed copy of Folio 11r from the Worcester Antiphoner (1225-30), the original of which is in the cathedral library.

This year we will be in residency on the 7th until the 11th August.  We welcome support from anyone who will be in the area at that time.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X1A3eHSXNfU&feature=youtu.be
