The Canterbury Gregorian Music Society’s concerts are among the Festival’s most popular events. This chant from the 13th-century Worcester Antiphonal in honour of St Dunstan has been newly transcribed from the original and is unlikely to have been heard in Canterbury since the Reformation. St Dunstan (909-988) was famously gifted in the arts and music, became Archbishop of Canterbury and ended his life teaching in the school of Theodore and Hadrian in Canterbury. Here, music and readings tell his story from contemporaneous sources. The organ offers alternating verses to the psalm settings and punctuates the concert with some solos.
