The Cathedral Choir of Men and Boys sing Choral Evensong at 3:00 pm, preceded by an organ recital played by Joe Setzer, Trinity Cathedral, Columbia, SC, at 2:30 pm.
Evensong has been one of the three principal liturgies of the Anglican/Episcopal tradition since 1549. The liturgy is alternately sung or chanted by the choir or clergy and the congregation sings appointed hymns. Appointed psalms are said or sung, followed by readings from Old and New Testaments, punctuated by canticles. Evensong appeals to Christians of all denominations and to those who enjoy choral music. It usually lasts 35 to 45 minutes. All are welcome!
