Sunday 18th October Choral Evensong
We welcome you to join us in person for Choral Evensong at 3.30pm on Sunday 18th October, St Luke's Day.
The Organist will be Mr Jack Wilson, and the Cathedral Choir will be conducted by Mr Matthew Owens. Music before the service will be "Angelus" by Norman Cocker, and the closing voluntary will be "Trumpet Tune" by Andrew Carter. The setting is by Richard Ayleward, and the Canticles from "Evening Service in A flat" by Basil Harwood. The Anthem will be "Strengthen ye the weak hands" by Sir William Harris.
Following guidance issued by the Northern Ireland Executive, all attending are to wear face coverings as they arrive and leave the cathedral, at times when social distancing will be difficult. During the service, while seated at 2 metre distance, members of the congregation are encouraged to wear face coverings. However quiet congregational hymn singing, while still wearing face coverings, is permitted and encouraged.
Please note that seating will be allocated from the front as members of the congregation arrive. And at the end of the service, after the organ voluntary, the congregation will be guided to leave from the back seats to those at the front. Those who belong to the same household will be able to sit together. However those from different households will be asked to sit separately. At present the cathedral has seating for 100 worshippers.
