Evensong

Evensong

Each Tuesday at 5:15 p.m. during the academic year at Virginia Theological Seminary, the Center for Liturgy and Music sponsors Evensong in Immanuel Chapel. Congregational singing is supported by the Virginia Theological Seminary Schola, an auditioned group of students and faculty. Several times each semester, Solemn Evensong is offered, with choral canticles and preces and responses. Seminary students serve as officiants and acolytes for Evensong, and ordained faculty officiate at Solemn Evensongs. The Center for Liturgy and Music is pleased to support this beautiful part of the Anglican musical tradition. This service also provides an opportunity for students to gain experience in chanting the Office and leading Evensong as part of seminary formation. All are welcome to attend Evensong during the academic year.
