Choral Evensong for the Feast of St. Luke
Thursday, October 18, 7:30 p.m.
Evensong (sung Evening Prayer), part of the Church’s ancient round of daily services of psalmody, scripture, and prayer, is a beloved and beautiful Anglican tradition, often providing the setting for great choral and organ music. It is especially fitting to sing Evensong on the Feast of St Luke the Evangelist, as his Gospel has given us the canticles – the Song of St Mary (Magnificat) and Song of St Simeon (Nunc dimittis) – sung daily at Evensong, but also other canticles and hymns sung at other services since ancient times. Please join the St. David’s Singers to celebrate this Evangelist who was especially concerned for the poor and marginalized, and who brought the Church so much song.
