Reception following in Room 325
This Sunday, the Adult Choir will present a service of choral evensong. Music will include the evening canticles in C by Ralph Vaughan Williams, Preces and Responses by Richard Shephard, and the anthems ALL PEOPLE THAT ON EARTH DO DWELL by Thomas Tallis, and AN EVENING HYMN by Simon Lole. Keith Diehl will be our guest organist, and the Rev. Gene Ticker, rector of St John’s in Huntingdon, will be the officiant. As part of our continuing safeguards during the pandemic, the choir will sing while wearing masks. Masks are now optional at St. Andrew’s for the congregation. A reception will be held in Room 325 after the service.
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.
