Event: Choral Evensong

< Return to calendar
Description
On Sunday 7th April members of Keswick Choral Society will sing Evensong in the ancient church of St Andrew, Dacre.

St Andrew's has stood from at least the 13th century. As St Andrew's currently has no choir of its own, KCS is helping to continue the tradition of choral worship practised by Christians for two thousand years. In the 21st century, research has shown that many people of all faiths and none are finding Evensong's 45 minutes of music and reflection provide a welcome period of calm and mindfulness in an increasingly busy world.

Everyone is welcome (there is no charge). The service will start at 4 pm.

The music will include the following:
Mozart: Ave Verum
Responses: Smith of Durham
Canticles: Stanford in C
Mendelssohn: He that shall endure to the end

The anthem by Mendelssohn is taken from his oratorio Elijah¬Ě and will serve as a taster for the Society's performance of the full work on 11 may at St John's church, Keswick
