About the Services

Choral Evensong

The Chapel Choir sing Choral Evensong every Wednesday in the Anglican tradition. This is a beautiful service of sung evening prayer, usually followed by refreshments downstairs in the Old Library.

Occasionally the choir will sing Choral Evensong at the Cathedral, in which case we attend there instead — notification will be made on this page and on our Choral Evensong page when this is the case.
