Candles and Chant
Currently we are offering a virtual version of Evensong. A service will be posted on Sundays just before 6pm.
The service is arranged as a PowerPoint so you can download or open in a separate window to listen to the music selections, which are chosen from YouTube for this week. We will probably explore other methods going forward .
Evensong was developed in the 16th century as a service for all people, not just monks and nuns. It uses the elements of the monastic evening service of vespers and compline that reflect over 1500 years of Christian prayer. The service includes chant and polyphonic music.
Compline is the last hour of prayer in the day. The name comes from the word for completion. Compline primarily uses Gregorian chant.
These services are open to all, regardless of tradition. Simply come in and find some peace.
