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

viola da gamba

Sarah Manthey

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.

The liturgy will be streamed online via Facebook Live beginning at 7 PM with an introit. This will also be viewable at the same time on this website via the Homepage.

We hope you will join us!
