Worshipful Company of Musicians' Evensong

Wednesday 4th October 2017

St Paul's Cathedral

This is a very special annual service. Masters, Wardens and Clerks are invited to process in gowns, chains and badges from the Crypt Chapel of St Faith to take our places under the Dome. The procession is a fine sight in one of the world's most awe inspiring architectural masterpieces. The highlight of this service, was, as far as I was concerned, the reading of the names of members of the Musicians Livery who had died in the last year, followed by a moving performance by The Royal College of Music String Orchestra of Elgar's Elegy for Strings (Op. 58). After we were blessed, we processed down to the Crypt, where we removed our gowns and enjoyed wine and canapes. The second party I had enjoyed in the Crypt in a month.
