Service of Choral Evensong

Posted

BRATTLEBORO -- The service of Choral Evensong will be sung on Saturday, Sept. 29, at 5 p.m., at St. Michael’s Episcopal Church. The 24-voice choir, led by Susan Dedell, will sing settings of the Evensong Canticles by Everett Titcomb, with additional liturgical music by Vaughn Williams.

Those in attendance will sing a variety of evening songs and chants woven throughout the service.

The music of Everett Titcomb (1885-1968) occupies a niche in American sacred music. It shows an affinity for plainchant and the polyphonic style of the 15th and 16th century Italians.
