Organ Vespers takes the place of this week’s Sunday offering of Choral Evensong. Organ Vespers is a curated worship opportunity that brings together evening liturgies from both the Episcopal and Lutheran traditions. Led by an organist and cantor, Organ Vespers will offer space for both participation in singing congregational hymns and silent prayer and meditation during organ works based on texts or themes of the day. These services will take place in Epiphany’s historic Chapel, featuring the Pasi organ. A wine and cheese reception will follow the service in the Fireside Room.
This service will feature music based on the chorale “Freu dich sehr, o meine Seele” by Johann Gottfried Walther, Johann Ludwig Krebs, and Gerald Near, along with a Magnificat cycle by Samuel Scheidt.
