Composed in 2016 for the boys of Shrewsbury House Preparatory School, Surbiton, this accessible setting of the canticles for evening prayer may be sung by boys, girls, adult voices, or any sensible combination at the discretion of the conductor. The organ part plays an important role throughout in colouring and dramatising the text. Details of registration are left to the player. Some of the thematic material is derived, albeit discreetly, from my 4th set of Preces and Responses.
