Choral Evensong Service to Remember Artists at St Patrick’s Cathedral, Dublin

Saint Patrick’s Cathedral has announced details for a service of Choral Evensong to remember the respective contributions of all those from the various branches of the arts who have died.

Through Scripture readings, prayers, the address and the singing of the choir an opportunity for a collective remembrance of those who have died from within the arts community will be created.

The service will take place in Saint Patrick’s Cathedral on Sunday, 18 November at 15.15.

Saint Patrick’s Cathedral invite you to forward any names of members of the arts community that you wish to be remembered, the cathedral will arrange for these to be displayed on the day. Please email Ken at safety@stpatrickscathedral.ie.

Choral Evensong is the oldest service used in the Church of Ireland, tracing its roots in the mastic worship offered by the early Christians. The form of Evensong which will be used in this service was created by Archbishop Thomas Cranmer (1489-1556) and is a fusion of the two monastic offices of Vespers and Compline.
