Sunday 16th June 2019: 1800.
Choral Evensong according to the Book of Common Prayer, sung by the church choir and singers from other local churches, takes place in St John’s Tisbury on the third Sunday in the month (except August and December) at 6pm.
Our June service on Sunday 16th will be the service of Compline to be sung to plainsong by local RSCM Choirs. It is preceded by a workshop starting at 4pm which is open to all who enjoy singing plainsong or would like to learn how to read and perform it from scratch. The session includes preparation for the service at 6pm.
The music is led by Trevor Jarvis, a member of the RSCM’s part-time staff and formerly Director of the Voluntary Choir at Buckfast Abbey, along with Stuart Robinson – our own Director of Music. Stuart is a staff tutor for the RSCM and he also works as a freelance radio and video producer.
We look forward to seeing you for what is an increasingly popular service, perhaps because of the cadences of its traditional language and its timelessness, combined with good quality speech and music – and coming as it does at the end of the day.
It’s true; more people are attending our Choral Evensong services too, though not in their thousands – as yet. Do come; you will be very welcome.
