Aquia Church will offer the first of our new monthly Choral Evensong service on October 14th at 5 PM.
This service will be held at 5 PM on the second Sunday of each month during the program year.
The service of Choral Evensong is a uniquely Anglican take on the ancient service of Vespers, or ‘Evening Prayer’; and the term ‘Evensong’ itself even appeared in Cranmer’s 1549 Book of Common Prayer. It is an entirely choral-led service often performed weekly in Cathedrals and larger churches throughout England and the United States. In it’s most basic form, a typical Evensong will always include the opening ‘Versicle and Responses’, the ‘Magnificat’ (Song of Mary) and the ‘Nunc Dimittis’ (Song of Simeon).
