- Introit – Chorister’s Prayer, Harper
- Preces and Responses – Sumsion
- Psalm 132
- Canticles – Brewer in D
- Anthem – Ave Maria, Parsons
We had a full hour’s break between the second Eucharist and the rehearsal for our final evensong – just enough time to go to the Cathedral Refectory and enjoy a jacket potato with cheese (a meal which I have come to associate with choir trips and cathedral refectories) and listen to some of the recordings from evensong earlier in the week.
There’s something sad about lining up in the choir vestry for the final time. The psalm was shorter than any we’d sung earlier in the week, the reading weren’t so long, and before we knew it, we were raising the quire roof with the last hymn, and processing out for the last time. On the positive side, we were very heartily thanked by the Dean for our singing during the week, and invited to come back again in the future.
Now, the long wait until we find out where next year’s trip will be.
