Join us for Choral Evensong this Wednesday evening, September 13, at 6:00

Evensong is one of the best-loved traditions of Anglicanism. It is the liturgy for Evening Prayer from the prayer book set to music, and when done right is a thing of exquisite beauty, whether it is celebrated in a great English cathedral or a local parish church. The prayer book's liturgy for evensong is the ancient monastic office of Vespers, translated and revised in English for use among the laity. It consists of the singing of psalms and hymns, scriptural readings, and prayers.
