Our final QuaranTune is Evening Hymn by Henry Balfour Gardiner. It has been chosen by Howard who sings tenor in choir.
Evening Hymn is a classic of English choral music. Written in 1908, it is Balfour Gardiner’s most well known piece in which he sets the hymn Te Lucis Ante Terminum for choir and organ.
This recording was made by an audience member at a performance by the choir at Douai Abbey in 2013 and gives the viewer the impression they are attending the concert live.
