It wasn't long after his arrival as rector that Ed Bacon wanted to add services. And that never stopped during his tenure.
In October 1996, we offered our first in a series of evensongs. Prior to that time, we would have one evensong each year, usually sung by a quartet on the 4th Sunday of Advent.
The almost-monthly evensongs that began with this event, deeply enriched our liturgical life over the years. They offered a different type of repertoire for the choirs to work on and an evening service, contemplative in nature, as a complement to our morning eucharists.
