Candlemas at St Bart’s and Southwark Cathedral

Christmas celebrations conclude this weekend when we remember Mary and Joseph leaving Bethlehem with Baby Jesus. Monday is the last day to see the crib.

Sunday 1 February is the eve of Candlemas.

Sunday’s evensong at Smithfield’s St Bartholomew the Great (6.30pm) will conclude with a procession to the Lady Chapel where the Nunc Dimittis will be sung to the setting by Byrd first heard maybe in 1605.

On Monday 2 February Southwark Cathedral observes Candlemas with a lunchtime Choral Eucharist (12.45pm).
