A deeply touching story which takes place over one day, a poignant moment in it marked by the bell for Evensong. Edward Chapman (1902–1981) held a number of distinguished posts including Musical Director of the Highgate Choral Society. John Rutter and John Tavener were contemporary students of his at Highgate School. This masterly arrangement is scored for SATB (with division) and baritone solo, and uses an effectively broad harmonic palette for such a simple melody.
