Parish Adult Choir presents Choral Evensong

As a kick-off for the 2012–13 Master Arts Series, the Parish Adult Choir will present a Service of Choral Evensong, this Sunday, September 30, at 6 PM.
The choir will sing all the traditional elements of the service which include two canticles, the Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis by Henry Smart, an anthem, Laudate Nomen, by Carlyle Sharpe, and Preces and Responses by Robert Lehman. The choir will also chant David Hurd’s setting of Psalm 96.
Choral Evensong is a version of the Service of Evening Prayer that is mostly sung by the choir, although there are times for the congregation to participate. It was originally formed by combining the monastic offices of Vespers and Compline.
