Choral Evensong sung by Cantemus Cum Spiritu
Thursday 9th August
17:15 - 18:15
Description:Choral Evensong is held in the Quire of Wells Cathedral and is sung by the Wells Cathedral Choir during term time. This is open to the public and all are welcome. Cantemus Cum Spiritu was formed in 2014 in order to provide the opportunity for leaders from church choirs which don’t necessarily get the chance to sing in cathedrals, to come together and sing music on a more challenging level. The emphasis is very much on understanding the text and the way in which it has been set in order to develop the ability to truly express it and sing it with spirit. It is the hope of the choir’s director, Jeff Stewart, that this influence will filter down, through the members, to their home choirs, and that this may, in some small way, help to build enthusiasm in the choral tradition in churches.
