Choral Evensong

Choral Evensong

Posted on behalf of Worth Choir

A rare chance to come and listen to the traditional and beautiful service of Evensong held in the tranquil surroundings of the 11th oldest church in the country, St Nicholas' Church, Church Road, Worth, Crawley RH10 7RT


Sung by Worth Choir and Directed by Alex Hiam, music will include Preces and Responses by William Smith, Canticles in D Minor by Thomas Walmisley, and Though I Speak With The Tongues Of Men by Edward Bairstow.


If you are not accustomed to this traditional service, it is one that has been sung regularly in Church since the Sixteenth Century, and was based on the Services held daily in the medieval church.  It's the high proportion of music in Evensong which distinguishes it from other church services. It is free to come to hear its choral music, performed live and to a high standard.
