Service of Choral Evensong
October 9 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
NOTE: Choral Evensong will be held in place of our weekly 5:30 p.m. Service of Holy Eucharist.
The St. John’s choirs will sing Choral Evensong, one of the oldest and most beautiful services in the Anglican tradition.
Choral music in the service will include:
- H. C. Stewart: Preces and Responses
- Herbert Howells: Psalm 111
- Charles V. Stanford: Magnificat and Nunc dimittis in D
- Herbert Howells: Behold, O God our defender
An organ recital will begin at 5:00 p.m. and serve as the prelude to Evensong. Our guest artist is Adam Ravain, Associate Director of Music at Faith Presbyterian Church, and a first year doctoral student in the organ department at FSU. The recital will feature the music of Felix Mendelssohn, William Grant Still, Max Reger, and Jehan Alain.
