Evensong Service Returns
September 23 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Return to the Cathedral Sunday evening, September 23 at 5 p.m. for Evensong with the Cathedral Choir under the direction of Canon Precentor William “Pat” Partridge.
One of the most striking qualities about Choral Evensong is its musical character. With the exception of the readings and a few prayers, the entire service is sung by the celebrant, the choir and the congregation. In addition, much of the beautiful music that is heard during Evensong is not used during regular services because of the unique evening service quality of Evensong. Choral music for this service includes Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis (Walmisley), Savior, Again to Thy Dear Name (Hebble), Save Us, O Lord (Matthews).
Refreshments will be served at the close of the service by the St. Martha’s Guild.
