The core of evening prayer consists of a hymn, psalms, a reading from Scripture, the Song of Mary (Magnificat), the Song of Simeon (Nunc dimittis), the Lord’s Prayer and concluding prayers. Hymns are sung at the beginning and end of the service and the congregation is invited join in heartily. As the choirs sings other parts of the service, the congregation is invited to listen, reflectively, prayerfully, as the words are offered on their behalf.
