Vespers is the ancient office of prayer, celebrated every evening throughout Christendom as the sun goes down. This beautiful and reflective music, plainsong chants sung in praise and contemplation contrast with the magnificent organ works of Marcel Dupre´ and the splendor of choral music by David Bevan, John Sheppard and John Duggan. David Bevan (b.1951) has worked as a singer, organist, composer and music teacher since 1980 and has held Master of Music, Director of Music and organist positions at churches in England and America. John Sheppard was a 16th c. composer, working in the time of Tallis, Taverner, and the like. His only recent rehabilitation is uncovering a composer of distinction despite the lack of hard knowledge about him. Composer and singer John Duggan has written for a number of choirs, received a number of commissions and is co-founder of Oxford-based choir Sospiri.
