Choral Evensong for Advent Sunday

Sunday, October 7th, 2018 at 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 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 reflect the mystery and anticipation of the Advent season. Music will include works of Palestrina, Weelkes, and Manz. Go to evensong.ststeve.com for details.

Visitors of all faiths are always heartily welcomed to join us in prayer, and all are invited to remain for a light wine & cheese 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.
