Choral Evensong for the Third Sunday of Easter
SUNDAY, MAY 1, 2022, 4:30 P.M., in the cathedral nave and livestreamed
Join together to offer praise to God and prayers for the world at the service of Choral Evensong offered in a traditional Anglican cathedral style on the first Sunday of the month. May’s liturgy will include the joyous Evening Service in C by Charles Villiers Stanford, well suited for Eastertide, and the anthem will be Duke Ellington’s Come Sunday, sung in an arrangement for choir by Alice Parker. Come Sunday was originally composed as an instrumental piece in 1943, and later made famous sung by Mahalia Jackson. Alice Parker’s arrangement elegantly transforms this sacred song into a choral work beautifully suited to the intergenerational Evensong Choir.
