Evensong 1

XX Choral Evensong at St Paul’s Anglican Church Athens

XΧ Choral Evensong  with Collegium & Cappella Sancti Pauli conducted by Iason Marmaras will take place on Sunday 25th November at 18.30 hrs.

The Renaissance Choral Evensong services at St Paul’s are organised by the Schola Cantorum Sancti Pauli, the Athens Centre for Early Music, and St Paul’s Anglican Church.

The choir 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 experience that musicians had of this music at those times, looking at the music as a functional part of the liturgy, rather than as a building-block for concerts.

Minister: The Reverend Canon Leonard Doolan

free admission, discretionary donation

A poem for the Harvest Festival – by Luke Bryant

Our father of two and erstwhile stand-up comedian Luke Bryant wrote this special poem which he recited during our lunch at the Kokotos Winery on Sunday 21st October. We are very grateful for his contribution which was much appreciated especially since he was suffering from a painful back that day.  We look forward to reading many more contributions from Luke and to his entertaining us again with his special brand of humour:

 

AN ANGLICAN IN ATHENS

We’ll start our rhyme at Christmas, a magical time of year,

The whole church gets together, to spread the joyful cheer.

The climate in Athens is not so British, not quite so icy cold.

  The Christmas tree goes up and the choir begins to sing.

Christmas wishes and thoughts of family, thoughts of memories of old.

And then the Christmas market, so many treats bought and sold.

 

And then we get through New Year’s, our year in the church begins afresh,

Time to detox ourselves from Christmas and kick-start our minds all fresh.

Time to start thinking about our Easter and preparing ourselves for Lent.

Time to count to forty and restart, our Anglican Christian faith.

Each year brings brand new challenges, created from our past.

Lent is time to focus and think about our past.
