St Paul’s is delighted to have its service of Choral Evensong broadcast on BBC Radio 3 tomorrow afternoon (Wednesday, 4th February) at 3.30pm. It can also be heard on Sunday 8th February at 3pm.
Broadcasting Evensong has become a firm fixture in the life of Cathedrals and Chapels across the country, and it is always a highlight of the year for the Choristers and Vicars Choral of St Paul’s.
We’re particularly pleased because this broadcast can be downloaded on BBC iPlayer, allowing our friends across the world to experience for themselves the beauty of the Evensong liturgy. Why not let us know where you’re listening from?
