St. Luke's Episcopal Church Evensong

posted Tuesday, October 23, 2012

St. Luke's Episcopal Church at 313 Main Street in Chester, VT, its organist and music director, Dr. Martha Stretton, and the choir invite you to attend a Service of Choral Evensong on Sunday, November fourth beginning with the Prelude at 3:45 p.m. Evensong is a service of reflection in which psalms, readings and canticles are the vehicles for God's message to us. A quartet The Meridian Chamber Singers will be a special guests at the service, singing two selections: "If Ye Love Me" by Thomas Tallis and "When Rooks Fly Homeward" by Arthur Banyon.

The service of Evensong, as found in the Book of Common Prayer, has its roots in the pattern of monastic worship. Archbishop Thomas Cranmer created the evening service by fusing the monastic evening offices of Vespers and Compline. Blending both the beauty of the music and language during Evensong allows the worshipper to enjoy both personal prayer and meditation. Please come join us for this lovely contemplative service. There will be a reception in Willard Hall following the service. For details check the Church website: http://www.stlukesepiscopalvt.org/ .
