Evensong, Bach Summer Workshops
Evensong (first Sunday of every month at 4pm) is a beautifully meditative service of psalms, canticles, hymns, and anthems, sung by the Chapel College Men and Boys Ensemble, Christopher Kula, director. The music draws primarily on the English cathedral tradition of the Tudor Chapel Royal, rounded out by Renaissance, Baroque and contemporary repertoire from other regions.
This short Anglican service combines the end-of-day monastic offices of Vespers and Compline. Since the latter part of the 16th century, England’s greatest composers have contributed to the rich musical tradition of this uplifting and beautiful liturgy.
Exceptional music presented by an exceptional group of singers, both young and professional.
Please see our audio library page for excerpts from this service.
