A Choral Evensong for Eastertide

Thursday, May 16 at 6pm. An Eastertide choral evensong featuring the Cathedral Choir.

The Service setting includes reponses by William Smith, the canticles in C and the anthem '“If ye be risen with Christ” by Charles Villiers Stanford.

“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.” (
