Musicians Company Evensong
Wednesday 3rd October 2012
To St. Paul's Cathedral for Evensong attended by the Worshipful Company of Musicians, accompanied by the Mistress and Mark Gower-Smith, Third Warden. We put on our gowns and Livery Badges in the Crypt and then had the pleasure of processing into the Cathedral itself with all the other Livery Companies present. Unlike the entry to St Lawrence Jewry earlier in the week, the first were first. It was a great privilege to sit right under the dome for Evensong and be calmed by the organ and the singing.
The Livery were in good voice but fortunately the Choir did most of the heavy lifting and we also had the benefit of The Royal College of Music String Orchestra, who played Elgar's Elegy for Strings in memory of the members of the Livery Guild who died in the past year.
Two of Wren's finest buildings in one week!
