Performance – Evensong 6 April 2011, 5.45 pm

The choir presents a programme of liturgical music within the context of Evensong, including works by three composers with strong Christ Church associations.  John Taverner and Thomas Armstrong were both Directors of Music in the college.  The anthem is Lassus’s powerful setting of one of the penitential psalms, ‘Out of the deep have I cried unto Thee, O Lord’, particularly suitably for the season of Lent.
