Choral Evensong in Remembrance of Actors, Artists Musicians and Entertainment Professionals

Saint Patrick’s Cathedral has announced details for a service of Choral Evensong to remember the respective contributions of all those from the various branches of the arts who have died.


Through Scripture readings, prayers, the address and the singing of the choir  an opportunity for a collective remembrance of those who have died from within the arts community will be created.


The service will take place in Saint Patrick’s Cathedral on Sunday, 18 November  at 15.15.


Speaking ahead of this special service, the Dean of Saint Patrick’s Cathedral, the Very Revd Dr William Morton said “I am very pleased that we can gather to commemorate the departed members of the artistic community. Our religious expression has always been enriched by the contribution of artists in many disciplines, so it is entirely appropriate to gather in this ancient place of prayer in order to celebrate their lives and the ways in which they have inspired us.”



Choral Evensong is the oldest service used in the Church of Ireland, tracing its roots in the mastic worship offered by the early Christians.  The form of Evensong which will be used in this service was created by Archbishop Thomas Cranmer (1489-1556) and is a fusion of the two monastic offices of Vespers and Compline. We welcome you to share with us in worship which has been offered in this Cathedral  for hundreds of years.


Here, beauty in language and music can speak to us of God in a rich and diverse way. Within this hallowed space you may forget the ceaseless activity of daily life and be still. In Choral Evensong, words and music come together, each enriching the other, in order that our senses and our intellects, our hearts and our minds, may help us to draw closer to God who is above all, and through all, and in all.
