The candlelit steps to the pulpit at Wells Cathedral for last year's Mediaeval Carols

The Wells candle-lit concert is one of Opus Anglicanum's most popular annual events. This year we will include Josquin's setting of the 1st chapter of St John In principio erat verbum, Dunstable's Magnificat Secondi Toni amongst the chant and 15th century English carols, and Obrecht's magisterial Factor Orbis with its interwoven biblical prophetic texts and concluding declamatory Noës.  The narrated texts this year are not from mediaeval sources but from Bonhoeffer, Angelus Silesis, and Lancelot Andrews.
