The Octavo Consort
On Sunday 20th July, members of Octavo joined Durham’s Hatfield College choir to sing Eucharist, BCP and Evensong at Chester Cathedral, under the direction of Tom Coxhead, who currently directs Hatfield College choir throughout the academic year. Together they sang Palestrina’s Missa Brevis setting, as well as Byrd’s Laudibus in Sanctus, Bairstow’s Let All Mortal Flesh and Herbert Brewer’s setting of the Evensong canticles. The organists for the services were Jonathon Clinch (morning services), Cindy Chang and Laura Erel (Evensong).
The day was a great success and Hatfield then went on tour to Sherborne Abbey to sing the week’s evensongs there. Octavo were proud to be part of the splendid ensemble and we look forward to other opportunities to sing with Hatfield again in the future.
Looking forward, Octavo are booked for a wedding in August – we always welcome further bookings for future weddings and concerts, so get in touch with us if you need a choral ensemble by going to our contact page or emailing [email protected].
