Choral Evensong

1st Wednesdays of the month, 6:30pm

Beginning on Wednesday, September 5, the Evensong Choir and Treble Choir will offer monthly evensong services at 6:30 p.m. on the first Wednesday of each month. Note that this is half an hour later than last yearís services. Except for the readings, the service is entirely sung. The choral settings of the evening Canticles, psalm, and responses are some of the richest musical literature in the Anglican tradition. Come and have dinner beforehand, worship for approximately 30 minutes, and take advantage of our Wednesday night classes. Itís a great way to get you through the

Offered monthly, this sung service of Evening Prayer has been a mainstay in Anglican cathedrals and collegiate chapels continuously since the first Book of Common Prayer in 1549. The office is sung entirely, with beautiful settings of the evening canticles, Magnificat and Nunc dimittis, sung by the choir, and musical settings of the responses. At St. Bartholomew's, the service is strictly the evening office with no sermon or Eucharist attached. Dinner is served in the Parish Hall before and after the service (call the church office to make a reservation).  The service is sung by an auditioned adult choir along with our treble choristers.
