It's getting to the end of the choir year, when some of the older children will be leaving us to go to university. Tradition is that they get to suggest music to do for the last few services of term. So while evensong did rather over-run this evening, we did have some lovely music - A 12 part magnificat by Victoria, Holst's 8-part setting of the Nunc Dimittis, and the anthem was also by Holst, Psalm 148 [links are to youtube recordings of other people singing these pieces].

That's a nice tradition. I wish my choirs had done such a thing. It would have been fun.

IME, evensong overrunning because of nice music is a much better reason than a series of 45 minute sermons on some of the more tedious books of the OT.
