TFD Canticles to be sung at Cambridge, October 2017
A rare piece of church music by TFD is to be sung by the choir of Clare College, Cambridge this coming autumn. Properly known as canticles, for Evensong service, the Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis settings were completed a century ago in 1917, though based on earlier drafts by Dunhill.
He took them to publishers Stainer & Bell who agree to publish them immediately. They were first sung at Westminster Abbey a little later.
Provisionally these will be sung by this fine choir in Clare College Chapel on Tuesday October 24th.
