Botley Music Festival: Choral Evensong – 7th July 2019
The 2019 Botley Music Festival began on Sunday 7th July with a Choral Evensong sung by our church choir. The settings of the Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis were the Kings College Service, recently written by Joanne Forbes-L’Estrange, and the anthem was ‘O Clap Your Hands’ by Vaughan Williams. The choir was conducted by David Burgess, our director of music, and the organist was Mark Dancer. Canon David Isaac preached, drawing on wide-ranging sources, from the psalms to Bruce Springsteen. The service was followed by a wine and cheese reception.
Many thanks to all those who took part in an uplifting service.
The Music Festival continues with a series of recitals and concerts, culminating with the Botley ìLast Night of the Proms on Saturday evening. More details are available on www.botley.com/music-festival
