Description:Choral Evensong is held in the Quire of Wells Cathedral and is sung by the Wells Cathedral Choir during term time. This is open to the public and all are welcome. Today the service is sung by All Saints’ Choir, the semi-professional choir of All Saints’ Church, Beverly Hills. In addition to providing musical leadership on Sunday mornings, All Saints’ Choir sings most of the special evening choral services on our series; major Sacred Concerts with orchestra sponsored by the All Saints’ Music Guild each year; as well as full Choral Eucharists on Christmas Eve, Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, Easter, Ascension, and Pentecost. The Choir specializes in music of the Anglican/American choral traditions, and is equally at home singing the great works of the European Continent, and music of contemporary masters. All Saints’ Choir consists of twelve staff singers and twenty-five auditioned volunteers, who rehearse on Thursday evenings from 7:30 – 9:30 p.m., September through May. The choir has produced five acclaimed recordings for Gothic Records, and made two tours to the eastern United States. It is scheduled for a two-week Choir Pilgrimage to Salisbury and Well Cathedrals in England in the summer of 2017.
