We invite you to attend a liturgy after dark. Evening Prayer + Music is an experience of the evening office which orchestrates liturgy, readings, chamber music, candles, and prayer. A bit different from the classic Evensong as sung by a cathedral choir, our expression offers ancient and modern chamber music, hymns and settings of the canticles sung by the congregation, and all within the embrace of Canterbury’s exquisite sanctuary.
If I say, “Surely the darkness will cover me, and the light
around me turn to night,” darkness is not dark to you, O
Lord; the night is as bright as the day; darkness and light to
you are both alike. Psalm 139:10,11
The next EP+M is scheduled for Thursday, May 21, 2020 at 7 PM. We will celebrate the Feast of the Ascension of Our Lord. The Reverend Doctor Jeanine Driscoll, Rector of St. Thomas, will officiate at the liturgy and music for viola da gamba & organ from the German Baroque will be performed by Sarah Manthey and Frederick Frahm. Repertoire will include the Lachrimae Pavaen by Johann Schop (1590-1667) and a Sonata in B Minor by Johann Gottlieb Graun (1703-1771). An order of service referencing the Book of Common Prayer will be posted on our FaceBook page earlier in the week.
We hope you will join us!
