On Sunday, March 10, at 5 p.m., the service of Evensong will be offered at Emmanuel Episcopal Church, 501 N. Broadway (corner of Broadway and Highland) as part of theLenten worship.
The guest choir will be Musica Sacra, a community chamber choir based in Oklahoma City at St. Paul's Cathedral and directed by Canon H. Scott Raab. The service is based in scripture for the purpose of prayer.
Choral music has adorned this service since its beginnings at the English Reformation. Developed by Archbishop Thomas Cranmer from the monastic services of vespers and compline, Evensong offers the best of both of those services. Musica Sacra will sing renaissance music of John Travers, Palestrina, and Guerrero. Fr. Carroll will officiate.
