Latin Evensong

March 9, 2016 -
5:15pm to 6:15pm
Memorial Church (Side Chapel)

This meditative service of music, readings and prayers derives from the Latin Book of Common Prayer (1560) authorized by Elizabeth I for use in schools and universities. No doubt Milton and Newton among others would have been familiar with these texts. Attendance at this service permits one to encounter a once vibrant but now almost vanished tradition and to connect in an experiential way to the cultural influence of the Book of Common Prayer. All are welcome, regardless of faith tradition or lack of one, to attend and to participate in whatever way is personally comfortable. Texts in both Latin and English will be provided.
