Choral Evensong

Sunday, May 6th, 2018 at 6:00 PM
Rogation Sunday (Easter V)

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 of Men & Boys on the First Sunday of the Month, the service begins at 6:00 PM and ordinarily lasts about 40 minutes.

This month’s service will be sung by the Boy Choristers, and will include the following music:

  • ❧ Hogan: Evening Service in E-flat (Washington Service)
  • ❧ Ledger: This joyful Eastertide
  • ❧ Hymn: For the beauty of the earth (Lucerna laudoniæ)
  • ❧ Hymn: All things bright and beautiful (All things)
  • ❧ Bach: Pièce d’Orgue

Visitors from 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.
