Choral Evensong Service
November 13, 2016 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Reserve time for a refreshing early evening spiritual and musical feast for the spirit! The Choral Evensong Service at Northminster allows the inspiration of scripture, music and the church to enter into the soul through personal prayer and meditation as night falls.
This year the Sanctuary Choir, along with Soloists, Strings and Organ, will sing the lovely Schubert Mass in G, probably the most familiar and popular of his masses. The mass text, consisting of praise, prayer and statements of faith, is the common heritage of all Christians.
Schubert’s lovely work, composed during one week in 1815 when he was 18 years old, was intended for use in his parish church. It is modestly scored for soprano, tenor and bass soloists as well as choir, strings and organ.
Schubert created soaring lyrical passages as well declamatory passages in setting the Nicene Creed. It is beautiful, poignant, inspirational and presents a quiet spiritual message.
The service will close with our traditional benediction of “Now the Day is Over” and a refreshment reception will follow in our Rowley Courtyard.
