Miss Cavell again

The Brussels Edith Cavell Commemoration Group commissioned me to write a set of Preces and Responses in memory of Nurse Cavell for our Choral Evensong at 19h30 on 10 October 2017. So I've done it in the new Dorico software from Yamaha-Steinberg. If you're in the area, then come along and listen. It's a service, so it's free of course. And if you'd like a copy of the music, you can download it on this site after 10 October.
    Preces and Responses are a standard part of the liturgy of Anglican Choral Evensong. There are similar liturgies in Catholic and Orthodox tradition, and their text goes back to the earliest centuries of the Christian church.
