The singers also performed Mr Hawley's anthem Dios te salve, Maria, which was written in preparation for the College Choir's tour of Spain.
Mr Parham-Connolly said: "Hearing the choir sing so brilliantly at St Paul's was a very special moment and I am delighted by the way they performed.
"We are used to hearing our girls set such high vocal standards, but to hear it at such a wonderful venue was a pleasure.
"The College community and the girls will rightly be proud of the whole event."
Following Evensong, College hosted a drinks reception in aid of the bursaries fund at The Goldsmiths' Hall.
