Laudemus! Competition Winners Announced

Laudemus!, an adult SATB choir and charity which meets annually to sing Choral Evensong in churches throughout Dorset, has recently announced the winners of its composition competition for an anthem written for competent SATB choir with organ accompaniment.

After much discussion, the adjudicators (Dr Barry Rose, Jeremy Jackman, Sam Hanson and RSCM’s Head of Publishing Tim Ruffer) agreed to award the prize jointly to two composers: to David Harris for Hail, gladdening light and to John Sturt for Te lucis ante terminum. They will share the prize of £1,000, and their anthems will be performed during Evensong on 10th August 2024 at Wimborne Minster. It is hoped that the composers may be able to be present.
