Choral Evensong and More

One of the ancient and modern aspects of the Anglican/Episcopal tradition is the beautiful service of Choral Evensong (sung Evening Prayer). This contemplative liturgy is led by a member of the clergy and the choir with hymns sung by the congregation and enhanced with incense. Each includes the Magnificat (Song of Mary), Nunc Dimittis (Song of Simeon), and an anthem. Please mark your calendars for these fall and winter offerings of Evensong, Choral Eucharist, and Advent Lessons & Carols! 

Advent Lessons & Carols, December 11, 5 p.m. The Grace-St. Luke’s Choir and the Memphis Boy & Girl Choir will present an Advent Service of Nine Lessons & Carols with music by composers, Craig Phillips, Dale Adelmann, Peter Aston, and Australian composer, June Nixon. A festive Advent Festival reception will follow in Trezevant Hall.
