All Saints' Concert
November 1, 2020 at 7:00pm
For this All Saints’ virtual concert, St. George’s Choir and the Choristers of St. George’s commemorate the lives of our loved ones through readings and music, including works by Herbert Howells, Edward Elgar, Maurice Duruflé, and Gabriel Fauré. During these challenging and anxious times, we hope these musical offerings provide a sense of comfort and healing as we turn to our Father in prayer.
A Service of Nine Lessons and Carols
December 6, 2020
Welcome the season of Advent with St. George’s annual liturgical feast of seasonal anthems interposed with readings, featuring St. George’s Choir, Choristers, and St. Dunstan’s Choir.
The Service of Evensong
Choral Evensong has been sung daily in the Anglican Church since the sixteenth century throughout the world. At Evensong, choral music and chant illuminates the biblical texts to allow a time of stillness, meditation, and prayer.
Choral Evensongs begin at 5:00pm on certain Sundays throughout the year. Due to COVID-19, no dates currently scheduled.
The Service of Compline
Stemming from monastic practice, Compline is the last service of the day before bedtime. From the same root as the word “complete,” Compline in the strict sense marks the beginning of a time of silence—from the end of the service lasting until the morning. This brief and beautiful service is set in a darkened church and sung by a small men's choir. Please feel free to venture past the altar rail to the seats along the sides of the altar and the organ console, or wherever you feel most comfortable in the room. Remain as long as you wish after the service in this quiet space, departing in silence.
Compline begins at 9:15pm in the Church on certain Wednesdays throughout the year. Due to COVID-19, no dates currently scheduled.
