Even song Saturday 26th August
The Manchester Cathedral Voluntary Choir will sing Choral Evensong at 3.30pm on Saturday 26 August in Paisley Abbey.
The Voluntary Choir usually meets at least twice each week to rehearse and sing for services and concerts within the Manchester Cathedral timetable. It sings a cross-section of the whole repertoire of traditional Cathedral music, including works by Palestrina, Byrd, Mozart, Stanford and Howells.
The choir has made appearances on television and has toured abroad to France, Ireland, Germany and Switzerland. For the last few years, during the late August Bank Holiday, the choir has sung for services in various cathedrals, abbeys and colleges around the country.
At the Choral Evensong in Paisley Abbey, the Canticles are by Herbert Sumsion, organist at Gloucester Cathedral from 1928 – 1967 and the anthem, Evening Hymn by Balfour Gardiner.
