The Incarnation Choir sings Choral Evensong each Sunday afternoon. One of the gems of the Anglican liturgical tradition, Evensong is a perfect way to begin your week in rest and quietness amidst the beauty of Church of the Incarnation. A wine and cheese reception follows the service.

Music Information for Sunday, May 19 (Pentecost)

This evening's Choral Evensong features our Choristers and Staff Singers. The rich tradition of children singing alongside adults, rooted in a history spanning thousands of years, initially featured only men and boys (the boys being needed to sing the higher pitched parts.) Today, choirs in the Anglican tradition worldwide have evolved to include women singers, and even more recently, girl choristers.

The experience of singing alongside adults, on an equal footing, serves as an invaluable educational tool. Beyond its musical benefits, this practice imparts essential lessons of responsibility and maturity to children. Tonight's service is a testament to and a continuation of the enduring legacy of this educational approach.

The morning and evening services of Charles Villiers Stanford will be familiar to many and have rightfully secured Stanford as a beloved composer of sacred choral music. His Evening Service in C remains one of his most rousing renditions of the Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis, featuring a riveting dialogue between choir and organ in the Gloria Patri. John Rutter's setting of The Lord bless you and keep you has become a cornerstone of the Anglican repertoire, beautifully highlighting the upper voices.

* During the summer, Choral Evensong is on hiatus from Memorial Day to Labor Day weekend.
