Program Notes - The Anglican Singers

www.anglicansingers.org [cached]

The Anglican Singers, an independently organized choral ensemble who are artists-in-residence at St. James Episcopal Church, have for over a dozen years led the service of Choral Evensong both at St. James and in other venues throughout the Northeast and Canada. Today's program is different in that it is a concert rather than a service, yet similar in that Director Simon Holt and the choir endeavor to convey to listeners the structure, meaning, and nuances of the sung evening service.
