So last night we had Evensong, for the first time in the Cathedral for ages. We were using settings from St Patrick's Cathedral Dublin (changing the 'O Lord guide and defend our rulers' to 'O Lord, save the Queen'), and a version of the Magnificat which combined plainchant and harmony sections.

The service seemed to go very well, with just one of the responses stumbling slightly... but we'll get better as we practice it more, and use it more... We might even get to do the Nunc Dimittus as well, which was sort of abandoned last night at the last minute cos we weren't fully up to speed on it.

I wasn't talking to anyone in the congregation after the service to hear what they thought of it, but it seemed to go well from where I was sitting.
