The Cathedral Choir of Men and Boys sing Choral Evensong at 3:00 pm, preceded by an organ recital played by Mark Dwyer, Church of the Advent, Boston, at 2:30 pm.
Evensong is a form of worship enjoyed by Christians of all denominations and by anyone who enjoys tradtional choral music. It 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. Psalms are said or sung, followed by readings from Old and New Testaments, punctuated by canticles. It usually lasts 35 to 45 minutes.
