Choral Evensong sung by Ex Collegio
Monday 20th 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. Ex Collegio was founded in 1981 by graduates from St Catharine’s College, Cambridge, who, as the college chapel choir, had first sung at Wells Cathedral in July 1979. Since then the choir, gathering recruits from other collegiate choirs, friends and from among its own offspring, has sung 361 services in 28 English and Welsh cathedrals, generally for a week each summer and for a weekend each winter. The choir has also given many concerts in aid of a variety of charities. Directed and led from its foundation by Timothy Venvell, formerly Organ Scholar at St Catharine’s and now Director of Music at the Royal Grammar School, High Wycombe, Ex Collegio is accompanied on the organ by one of his former pupils, Richard Carr.
