The Choirs of the American Cathedral in Paris will perform a Choral Evensong for the Feast of St. Michael and All Angels on Friday September 29, featuring choral music by Herbert Howells (1892-1983), William Harris (1883-1973), and Edward Bairstow (1874-1946).

This is the first of five evensongs scheduled at the Cathedral this year, as part of a decision to revive an old Cathedral tradition.

The Choirs of the American Cathedral in Paris, founded in 1884, are a mix of professional and auditioned amateur singers, of all faiths and nationalities. Recent Choir concerts have included Handel’s Messiah, Bach’s St. John Passion, Chichester Psalms of Bernstein, the Four Motets and Requiem of Duruflé, and large works of Britten, Howells, and Finzi. They have been recorded for radio broadcast by the BBC and Fréquence Protestante.

The Evensong for the Feast of St. Michael and All Angels will take place at 5pm on Friday, September 29. Attendance is free.

2017 Chapman Dialogues: Faith and Civility Beyond the Golden Rule
We were taught the Golden Rule at an early age, “do unto others as you would have done to you.” Lately it feels more like ‘do unto others before they get a chance to do unto you.’

Civility in the workplace, in our houses of worship, at home – where do faith and civility intersect? How do we move beyond the Golden Rule as our sole rule of thumb? Join Mr. Daniel Buccino, director of the Johns Hopkins Civility Initiative, and others to explore this most-timely topic. Perhaps we can even begin to recognize the “us” in “them.”

Visit chapmandialogues.org to learn about the Chapman Dialogues: Conversations on Faith series and this year’s in-depth look at Faith and Civility: Beyond the Golden Rule.
