Evensong at St. Paul’s Oakland
Evensong, a short choral service of psalms, canticles, hymns, and anthems, is a quiet alternative to the traditional Sunday morning Holy Eucharist. There is no sermon. It is sung by St. Paul’s Choir on the first Sunday of the month, October to June, at four o’clock p.m.
This Anglican service combines the end-of-day monastic offices of Vespers and Compline. Ever since the latter part of the 16th century, many of England’s greatest composers, as well as composers from around the world, have contributed to the rich musical tradition of this uplifting and beautiful liturgy.
Stop by on Sunday afternoon for a gentle service that has been known to unlock internal doors of hope and peace for many.
