An Evensong on the Feast of All Saints

Friday, November 1 at 6pm. A choral evensong sung by the Cathedral Choir and directed by Canon of Music, Zachary Ullery on the Feast of All Saints. Service setting and music by Bruce Neswick, Kenneth Leighton and Basil Harwood.

The Cathedral will be closed today except for the office of Choral Evensong.

“Choral Evensong is a 45-minute long peace-inducing church service in which the “song” of voices sounding together in harmony is heard at the “even” point between the active day and restful night, allowing listeners time for restful contemplation - Church members, agnostics, and atheists alike. It is both free of charge and free of religious commitment, and its 470-year-old choral music tradition - established around 1549 - is performed live and often to a very high standard.” (
