Choral Evensong - a truly global experience

A broadcast of Choral Evensong from St Paul's Cathedral has been listened to right across the world, with people tuning in from the UK, Europe, Africa, North and South America and Australia.

The service, broadcast live on BBC Radio 3 on Wednesday 2 April, was a rare opportunity for the Choir of St Paul's Cathedral to be heard outside the walls of the Cathedral.

During the service and via the catch-up service, those tuning in via the BBC website let the Cathedral know where in the world they were enjoying the service. People posted messages from the Netherlands, Germany, Canada, Australia, Brazil, Uganda and more than two-dozen locations right across the United States.

The service included music by Elgar, Brahms, Mendelssohn and Noble. The choir was directed by Andrew Carwood and Simon Johnson played the organ.

There is still an opportunity to hear the service in full again at the link below.
It will be available until Wednesday 9 April.

BBC Radio 3's Choral Evensong is a long-running weekly programme, which broadcasts from churches and Cathedrals across the UK. Next week the service comes from Birmingham Cathedral.
