May 5 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

On Sunday, May 5, St. Andrew’s Choir will present a service of choral evensong. Music will include the evening canticles in A-flat by Sarah MacDonald, Preces and Responses by Robert J. Powell, and the anthems “Peace I Leave You” by Amy Beach, and “Draw Us in the Spirit’s Tether” by Harold Friedell. The Rev. Kevin Barron will be the officiant. Organist Gwen Catchen will play music by Johann Pachelbel and others.

Evensong, like all forms of liturgical worship, has elements of drama and ritual that nourish the spiritual life of all of us. It is based entirely on elements of Holy Scripture and it is scripted according to a long history, originating in Judaic and early Christian evening worship. Evensong is traditionally mostly sung by a choir, with the full congregation participating throughout in thoughtful prayer, allowing the music to touch us and to draw us closer to the presence of God.

A reception follows the service in Room 325.
