So, our first choral evensong of 2010, and my one year anniversary with the Nicholas Chorale.
As is becoming a pattern, I read one of the lessons… and managed to completely mispronounce the word “saith” about 5 times. Which wouldn’t be so embarrassing if it hadn’t been for the fact that I sung it any number of times when practising the anthem. I also lost my place for one heartstopping fraction of a section. Reading lessons remains ridiculously scary!
- Introit: O Almighty and everlasting God, Barcrofte
- Responses: Statham
- Office Hymn: Hostes Herodius impie
- Psalms: 8 and 20
- Canticles: Sumsion in G (and I’ve been singing them in my head ever since!)
- Anthem: From the rising of the sun, Ouseley (which has also occasionally been popping into my head to give Sumsion a break)
