What is Evensong? Choral Evensong is an informal name for the sung service of Evening Prayer in the Anglican tradition. It is based on the monastic offices of
Since most of the service of Choral Evensong is sung by the choir to musical settings that draw on the rich repertoire of choral music composed specifically for the service, the congregation participates mainly through attentive meditation on the words of Holy Scripture and prayer, either said or set to music. We invite all to celebrate the end of the Lord’s Day in this contemplative service of prayer, music, and reflection.
St. Bartholomew’s celebrates Evensong generally on the first Sunday of the month, October through June. See below for the 2018-19 schedule of dates and music for Evensong and other major liturgies of the church year. All are invited to the reception following Evensong and most other special services, sponsored by members of the parish and the Hospitality Committee.
