The office of choral Evensong, often referred to as “the jewel in the Anglican crown”, is a centuries-old musical tradition and has its roots in 16th-century England, when Thomas Cranmer, Archbishop of Canterbury under Henry VIII, took parts of the existing offices of compline and vespers and shaped a new service of evening prayer.

Sung monthly by the Cathedral Choirs, this reflective and meditative service is open to all. Dates and hours are listed in our events calendar or visit to learn more about this tradition.
