Choral Evensong at Christ Church Cathedral
June 30, 2014, 5:15 p.m.
Directly across from our conference hotel, the Sheraton City Centre Indianapolis, is the Episcopal Christ Church Cathedral. The Cathedral and their staff are making our conference faculty and attendees welcome, allowing us the use of their choir room and church for rehearsals, hosting our organ breakout series and allowing us the use of their parish hall.
Their Associate Organist and Choirmaster, the award-winning Simon Thomas Jacobs, will present a recital for the Colloquium on July 2nd. As a special treat, their choir will also be performing a Choral Evensong for us on Monday evening, the opening day of the Colloquium.
From Mary Jane Ballou’s article on ChantCafe:
“The Evensong Service is the crown jewel of the Anglican musical tradition.The Book of Common Prayer combined the two canticles originally sung at Vespers and Compline, the Magnificat and the Nunc Dimittis, which are sung sequentially at Evensong. Other music includes sung preces (short petitions), an anthem, psalmody with antiphons, as well as an organ prelude and postlude.
Christ Church Cathedral has a well-known choral program including a choir of men and boys, a choir of girls, and a Spanish language choir. The principal choir has recorded and toured extensively, so hearing their music will be a delight.
