Choral Evensong is a historic liturgy derived from Vespers and Compline, ancient monastic prayer services of the Christian church. Evensong at Duke Chapel follows the Book of Common Prayer, and features stirring choral and organ music of the English cathedral tradition, led by the Chapel's Evensong Singers. Music is this service will be from the seventeenth century, including composers Dowland, Ayleward, Blow, and Purcell. Before the service at 3:30 p.m., the Chapel's Dr. Philip Cave will give a talk "Rebellion and Restoration in Seventeenth-Century English Church Music" that will provide context for the service's music and liturgy.
