Evensong is the service of Evening Prayer set to music, and it’s one of the jewels of the Anglican worship tradition. For centuries, composers have been putting the prayers of this ancient service to music, so we have a rich variety of choral settings for the psalms, the canticles (psalm-like settings of Scripture), and the prayers of the service itself, chanted by the officiant and the choir.
