Title:Evening Prayer at the Bowens, Sept 30, 2012
The fabulous weather continued and 17 of us ventured to Perry and Virginia Bowen’s home called Oakenbrow for a service of Evening Prayer. The home sits on a hill overlooking fields leading to the Rappahannock River.
The service opened with "All Praise To Thee My God This Night" by Thomas Tallis
We thank Susan O for agreeing to accompany the choir in the canticles. They practiced two weeks for the event. An audio file of the first canticle follows:
The service was Rite 1, Evening Prayer from the 1928 Prayer Book which Virginia remembered from her childhood. She picked the hymns and canticles to be used.
Before the service there was a wine and cheese party.
