Join us for Evensong 

Our next service of Choral Evensong will be on Sunday, 24 March at 5:00pm. The choir will sing a beautiful setting of the evening canticles by Allen Orton Gibbs (1910-1996). Mrs. Gibbs was born in Alabama, was a graduate of the Birmingham Conservatory of Music, and later a member of the faculty. Her compositions include works in a variety of genres: choral anthems, organ works, vocal solos, and hymn tunes. Most of her compositions were written for her own use, or for friends and colleagues. The Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis were written for her son, Thomas Gibbs, when he was Choirmaster at the Cathedral Church of the Advent in Birmingham, Alabama. The anthem will be Johannes Brahms’ Lass dich nur nichts nicht dauren (Let nothing ever grieve thee), and the Preces and Responses will be by William Smith.

Please plan to join us for this service of scripture, prayer, candlelight, and beautiful Lenten music.
