Our February Evensong surveys choral music from African-American Spirituals, including music arranged by Moses Hogan, John Leavitt, and John Rutter. Featuring guest organist Alex Benestelli, Director of Music at St. James-by-the-Sea Episcopal Church, La Jolla. 

Choral Evensong is often called one of the great treasures of the Anglican tradition. A fusion of the ancient monastic evening prayers (Vespers and Compline), Evensong is a service of reflection, song, and prayer at the close of the day led by the choir. We offer Choral Evensong typically on the first Sunday of each month through June, followed by a light reception.
