Choral Evensong in Celebration of the Life of a Gracious Man

2001 Mar At the WindowSunday, Feb. 7, 2016, 5:30 pm
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.”
