Music for this service includes works by Byrd, Howells, Stanford, and S.S. Wesley.
Choral Evensong is a sung version of Evening Prayer, which is itself a combination of the daily offices of Vespers and Compline. This beautiful service includes sung prayers and responses, psalms set to plainsong or Anglican chant, readings, anthems, hymns, and additional prayers and blessings for the end of the day.
Members of the congregation are invited to join in the chanting of the psalm and in the singing of hymns.
