The Twenty Third Psalm, Ralph Vaugh Williams
The Dawning, Richard Webster

These sound like nice choices! How lucky for you to be able to go on a choral pilgrimage. Good luck with your performances.

Ginny -- thanks for your kind words. We enjoyed the opportunity to share choral evensong with this parish. This is our second time to go to England, so I don't think we're as excited (or scared) as the first time, but within a month or two, I think the reality of it will hit us all. It's a very special thing that has a direct impact on our singing, our understanding of our role in worship, and of our Anglican musical traditions.
