Choral Evensong dates back to the time of the Reformation, using elements of the old monastic Offices of Vespers and Compline and is one of the great treasures of the Anglican tradition. Evensong is a 45-min, peace-inducing service in which the ‘song’ of voices sounding together in harmony is heard at the ‘even’ point between the active day and restful night, allowing listeners time for restful contemplation.  Evensong features sung psalms, canticles, hymns, and lessons. It is both free of charge and free of religious commitment, and its choral music is performed live and often to a very high standard.
