Choral Evensong

At 5 o’clock on the first Sunday of each month during the academic year, St. Francis in the Fields offers a music recital and a service of Choral Evensong. This service is sung by the treble choristers, assisted by adult altos, tenors and basses. Evensong attracts parishioners and others from the community who appreciate this gem of traditional Anglican worship.

Here are the recitals and Choral Evensong settings for 2016-2017 (recitals are in bold; evensong settings are in normal typeface):
