Choral Evensong featuring Requiem by Gabriel Faure

St. Andrew's Episcopal Church

time 5:00 pm

November 1, 2020

Join us for Choral Evensong (sung prayers) at 5 p.m. with Paul Meier, guest organist. The service is sung by the St. Andrew’s Staff Singers, featuring Fauré’s Requiem.

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.

You can attend in-person or online! Please reserve your spot if you plan to attend in-person by calling 816-523-1602 or emailing Mary Sanders.
