for SSAATTBB and organ Organist of Trinity College, St John's College, and Professor of Music at Cambridge simultaneously, Walmisley is known today for his Evening Canticles in d minor and a handful of anthems. This fine double choir setting was written some ten years before the d minor set, and is published to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the composer's birth. There are fewer contrasts of texture than in the later setting, but the two choirs are used to great effect, with the Gloria starting with striding imitation between soprano and tenor (later alto and bass) over a pedal point in the organ.

About Thomas Attwood Walmisley

Thomas Attwood Walmisley was the godson of Thomas Attwood (a pupil of Mozart). At the age of 16 he was appointed Organist of Croydon Parish Church where his interests in literature and mathematics were encouraged by Thomas Miller, sometime Fellow of Trinity College Cambridge who was probably behind his election as Organist of both Trinity and St John's Colleges in 1833. His Magnificat and Nunc dimittis in B flat date from 1845. Walmisley's premature death
was doubtless hastened by his fondness for alcohol.
