Choral Evensong provides a space for prayer, reflection and thanksgiving. The choristers of the Cathedral School are usually in attendance, with visiting choirs occasionally.
Celebrating the Nativity of John the Baptist, this Solemn service of Choral Evensong is enhanced by the use of incense to cense the altar during the Magnificat in an ancient tradition.
