The Renaissance Choral Evensong services at St Paul’s are organised by the Schola Cantorum Sancti Pauli, the Athens Centre for Early Music (of the Ατhens Conservatory), and St Paul’s Anglican Church.
The Cappella Sancti Pauli, under the direction of Iason Marmaras, sing a series of Choral Evensong services that aim to revive the musical and liturgical practice at Cathedrals and Chapels during the Renaissance, but also the music as experienced by musicians in those times, seeing the music as a functional part of the liturgy, rather than as a building block for concerts.
