Choral Evensong for Michaelmas

October 1st, 2017
6:00 PM

Evensong, a fusion of the monastic prayer offices Vespers and Compline, is one of the greatest treasures of the Anglican tradition. Presented by Saint Stephen’s Choir on the First Sunday of the month, the service begins at 6:00 PM and ordinarily lasts about 40 minutes.

This month’s service, sung by the boys of the choir, will celebrate Michælmas (the Feast of St Michæl and All Angels) which the Church observed on 29 September. Music will include a setting of the Preces & Responses based upon chorale harmonisations of J.S. Bach, George Dyson’s Evening Service in C minor, John Rutter’s The Lord bless you and keep you, and two Michælmas hymns: Christ, the fair glory and Ye holy angels bright.

Visitors of all faiths are always heartily welcomed to join us in prayer, and all are invited to remain for a light reception following the service. Admission is free of charge, however a freewill offering will be received in aid of the choir’s charity, the Christ Child Society of Baltimore.
