Continuing the celebration of Creation launched with the Blessing of Animals on October 2, Saint Mark's Cathedral commemorates the lives of Saints Clare and Francis of Assisi in Choral Evensong on the Eve of the Feast of Saint Francis. The intergenerational Evensong Choir will offer H. Walford Davies' magical setting of Psalm 121, I lift up my eyes to the hills, John Rutter's beloved setting of For the beauty of the earth, and Stanford's stately settings of the Songs of Mary and Simeon in the key of C.
