The Renaissance Vespers have been organised since 2016 by the Schola Cantorum Sancti Pauli, in collaboration with the church of Saint Paul. They last about 45 minutes and they consist largely of polyphonic singing, which surrounds readings of texts by the priest and members of the congregation, as well as improvisations in the ecclesiastical organ of the church. Vespers are held entirely in English, while Greek translations of the texts are distributed.
Schola Cantorum Sancti Pauli is the School of Renaissance Polyphony in Athens. Their activity consists in equal parts of courses in renaissance theory and practice (on temporary hiatus), rehearsals, Vespers in the Anglican Church, and
concerts in Greece and abroad.
