Choral Evensong on Sunday 19 February will feature the select 60-voice Central College A Cappella Choir. The Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis are from the Harvard Service by American composer, Charles Callahan. The Offertory Anthem will be Abendlied (Eveningsong) by Josef Rheinberger, which the choir is preparing as part of its May tour program to be sung in Austria and Germany. This six-part unaccompanied evening prayer sung is appropriate for Evensong: "Bide with us, for evening shadows darken, and the day will soon be over."

Cathedral Carillonneur Carl Gravander climbs the bell tower and rings the carillon bells before service begins. Come a bit early to hear the "true" carillon, one of only three in the state. 

A reception follows the service, to which all are invited. We love to get to know one another better, and we would love to get to know you! Plan to stay, encourage these young musicians, and be blessed by our time together.
