CHORAL EVENSONG
St. Louis Priory
St. Louis Abbey Church
Sunday Evening, May 16

The "office of Evensong" is sung at
the close of each day in abbeys and
monastic communities, this past evening
by the monks of the Benedictine order (O.S.B.)
and the choir of
The Church of St. Michael & St. George
in St. Louis.
It is a service of rare beauty offered through
the singing of psalms and canticles,
virtually unchanged for 400 years.


Time is suspended as words and voices
combine in music resonating throughout
the sacred acoustics of St. Louis Priory/Abbey Church.
