Community Invited To Evensong On Sunday At St. Stephens

This Sunday is another popular Choral Evensong at 5pm held at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church (4805 NE 45th Street).
Leslie Martin, Director of Music, told us that the St. Stephen’s choir will sing the evening canticles, Magnificat and Nunc dimittis, as set by the English composer, Herbert Sumsion (1899-1995), who was organist and choirmaster at Gloucester Cathedral. 

The service will also feature the choral anthem, “O Lord, the Maker of al thing” by the Tudor composer, William Mundy (1529-1591).

Evensong, a short 45 minute service, takes place the first of every month and is "chanted in the beautiful surroundings of the church, featuring inspiring anthems and soaring settings of the evening canticles – Magnificat and Nunc dimittis – which mix with shafts of light streaming through our unique and beautiful stained glass windows, making a feast for the senses."

The event is free and open to the public.
