10th Anniversary Choral Evensong
Sunday, Feb. 19, at 5 p.m.

On St. Valentine’s Day in 2007, our new church building (which is our current nave and sanctuary) was dedicated. To commemorate the 10th anniversary of that dedication, on February 19 (Sunday), at 5 p.m., we will give thanks to God and remember all those whose gifts of time, talent, and funds made that dedication possible, with a special Choral Evensong featuring music written by Dr. Powell especially for that dedication. Please plan to attend and bring friends. The nursery will be staffed, and Evensong will be followed by a celebratory reception. A poster is attached, and we’d be most appreciative if you would forward this message and/or the poster to anyone who may be interested.

August 31st: A Very Special Choral Evensong by Christopher Wilson

At the end of this month, at Saint Andrew’s Church in Fort Worth, will be the first Choral Evensong coming out of the choir’s summer break, and a very special one at that!

Our own chorister and composer Christopher Wilson has been penning a complete setting for an Evensong service for several years, the “Preces and Responses” of which the choir took to perform in Salisbury Cathedral in the summer of 2013.

On August 31, at 5pm, the Choir of Saint Andrew’s will present Mr. Wilson’s Evensong setting in full, with a premiere of his “Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis,” a new anthem setting of “Ave Maria,” and a new Psalm setting.

The choir is very excited about this coming Evensong, and we dearly hope to see you there!
