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 Schola Cantorum 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.
