Third Service (2014) SA (pdf)
My third setting of the Evening Service is a departure from the previous two which were reflective and subdued; this setting is much more vivacious and declamatory. There are still moments of introspection (such as the opening of the Nunc dimittis) but the overall mood is one of proclamation and fervent energy.
