Special Lenten Evensong Services
February 26 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Beginning on Sunday, February 26th at 6:30 pm, the first Sunday of Lent, and continuing through Sunday, March 26th, St. Gabriel will be celebrating special Lenten Evensongs. Each week will feature a different text and live piano instrumental music inspired by the text. The text for Week 1 will be from the 1979 BCP, and the music will be meditative hymns for Lent from the 1982 Hymnal. The text for Week 2 will be from A New Zealand Prayer Book with instrumental music ranging from French composer Léo Delibes to American composer Stephen Sondheim. The text for Week 3 will be from the Ukrainian Orthodox Church with music by the Ukrainian composer Viktor Kosenko. The text for Week 4, Laetare Sunday, will draw from a service for the Mother of Sorrows featuring music ranging from ancient hymns to compositions by Ralph Vaughn Williams and Boris Gounod. Finally, the text for Week 5 will come from the book Common Prayer: A Liturgy for Ordinary Radicals with music from Hillsong Worship. Please join us for any or all of these very special Evensong services for the Lenten Season.
