The Service of Evensong
Evensong is a contemplative service of psalms, canticles, hymns, and anthems, a quiet alternative to the traditional Sunday morning Holy Eucharist.
This short Anglican service combines the end-of-day monastic offices of Vespers and Compline. Since the latter part of the 16th century, England’s greatest composers have contributed to the rich musical tradition of this uplifting and beautiful liturgy.
Sung by St. Paul's Choir of Men and Boys, and directed by Christopher Kula, the music draws primarily on the English cathedral tradition of the Tudor Chapel Royal, and also includes Renaissance, Baroque and contemporary repertoire from other regions.
The "boys" of St. Paul's Evensong choir are students in our Boy Treble Program. Young men in our community have the opportunity to develop their talents and love of music in a learning environment that instills high personal standards and pride in performing at their best.
