Sanctuary Sunday: Choral Evensong
26 June, 2022 15:00 - 16:00
Cathedral Choral Evensong is essentially a service of reflection—of leaving ourselves open that God may speak to us through the psalms, readings and canticles, which are the core of the service. Cathedrals with a great choral tradition draw upon a rich inheritance of music, much of it sung by the choir alone. In the Anglican tradition this music finds its natural setting in the office of Evensong, a combination of the medieval offices of Vespers and Compline. The choice of scripture readings is from the ecumenical lectionary now in use in the Church of Ireland, reading though the different books of the Bible, little by little, day by day.
This Sanctuary Sunday, Choral Evensong sung by the cathedral choir will also have guest preacher Dr Ebun Joseph, Founder and Director of the Institute of Antiracism and Black Studies, and Chairperson of the African Scholars Association Ireland (AFSAI).
All are invited to join us for a cup of tea or coffee and a chat following the service.
