In one of those moments of pure beauty I got to spend an hour or so in the company of York Minster’s choir during their rendition of Even song. I have never been to an Even song performance before, even when I was religious, so for me as a secular unbeliever I found the ethereal beauty of the music and vocal arrangements to be be enchanting and enrapturing. I had my eyes closed for over have the service, and just like Sikh hymns or Buddhist chants it took me to a place of peace and serenity.
Not being able to photograph the performance I had to settle for the spectacular interior of the Minster to try and convey the ethereal nature of the song. I would definitely recommend anyone to experience it if you ever get the chance to, as it took me to a place of calm and reflection, which in turn allowed me to see the glory of the building anew.
