Choral Evensong will be sung at the Cathedral of St. Andrew on Sun., Feb. 14 at 5:30 pm.

The setting of the Magnificat and Nunc dimittis is from the Short Service by Thomas Weelkes (ca. 1591 – ca. 1637), an English composer and organist.
Evensong has been sung in Cathedral Churches for centuries and, through prayer and song, offers to God our thanks for the day that is past and seeks the light of God’s presence through the coming night.

The Cathedral of St. Andrew
Choral Evensong in Memory of Lowell Bradford Barnhart
The Cathedral of St. Andrew will remember the life of Lowell Bradford Barnhart in a Choral Evensong on Sunday, February 7 at 5:30 pm. John Renke will direct the Cathedral Choir in C.V. Stanford’s “Evening Service in G,” Walford Davies’ “Blessed are the pure in heart,” and Gardiner’s “Evening Hymn.” The service will not be a funeral nor even a celebration of his life, but will be the fulfillment of Lowell’s one and only wish: To aid in the preservation and restoration of the magnificent Aeolian-Skinner organ in the Cathedral.
Lowell, who spent nearly all of his professional life as a designer in Hawaii, was the Cathedral’s “Verger.” In this role, he not only led the processions of clergy and choir for all the Cathedral’s services for eighteen years, but also took on the responsibility of scheduling, teaching, liturgy planning and liturgy participation, making Sundays an 8-hour workday. At his retirement in 1996, he was bestowed with the title of “Cathedral Verger Emeritus.”
