After a morning off, The All Saints Fulham Choir will be singing Choral Evensong on Sunday 28th October.
The canticles will be Gabriel Jackson’s Truro Service. This is a very modern piece, written in 2001. In fact, Jackson celebrated his 50th birthday in July this year. He is currently associate composer to the BBC Singers.
Over 60 pieces of his work have been recorded by choirs worldwide. He was commissioned to write a carol for The Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols at King’s College in 2009 – The Christ Child. Also a piece for the 2010 BBC Proms – In Nomine Domini.
He is currently writing a piece for the 40th anniversary of the Tallis Singers.
