Choir at EvensongMay2015jpg

Solemn Evensong

The Choir of St. James’ has distinguished itself as the first American Choir to have sung in performance with the Choir of Westminster Abbey, London. Since then, they have served three times as Choir-in-Residence at the Abbey, as well as services at Christ Church Oxford, Wells Cathedral, St. George’s Chapel Windsor, and Canterbury Cathedral. They are pleased to offer the Los Angeles community the uniquely Anglican service of Evensong in the style of the great English Cathedrals on the second Sunday of the month, October through May. Freewill offering.

International Laureates Organ Series

For the past nineteen years we have been honored to host many of the most distinguished organists from throughout the world. This season we welcome Simon Johnson (England), Thomas Gaynor (New Zealand), Weicheng Zhao (China), and American organists Peter Richard Conte, Dexter Kennedy and Anne Laver.

We invite you to experience great organ music played on the David John Falconer Memorial Organ (originally built in 1911 by Murray M. Harris). Comprising over 5,000 pipes in total, the organ is an important part of Los Angeles musical history and takes its place among the country’s most important and magnificent instruments.

These recitals are offered as a gift to the community free of charge, and we are grateful to the Ahmanson Foundation and our Friends of Great Music for their continuing support.

Silence and Music – Compline

Drawn from the most contemplative of the monastic offices begun in the middle ages, this candle-lit choral service offers music from Gregorian Chant and early polyphony to the contemporary music of modern mystics. An offering of thanksgiving and a plea for peace, the voices of the Schola Cantorum of St. James’ presents three Compline services this season: on the fourth Sundays of November, January (moved to fifth Sunday, January 29) and March. Freewill offering.

Advent Procession of Lessons and Carols

Patterned after the ever-popular service of Nine Lessons and Carols originating from King’s College, Cambridge, England, the Choir of St. James’ offers this service in anticipation of Christmas on 11 December 2016 (in place of Evensong). Freewill offering.
