East London Evensong Choir brings singers together to lead
quality services of Choral Evensong in London's East End.
The East London Evensong Choir was founded in 2016 by its musical director Jonathan Pease.
Our vision is simple: to harness the wealth of musical talent in east London; and to enable choral
worship of the highest standard in London's East End, using the unique riches of the
Book of Common Prayer.
Initially resident at Christ Church Isle of Dogs, the choir soon developed a busy life of its own,
visiting Parish Churches across the East End - a practice described as "hit-and-run Evensong"
by the Dean of Chelmsford Cathedral - as well as singing at major churches and cathedrals
during choir holidays.
In September 2021, the choir entered into a partnership with All Saints', Poplar, leading a thriving, regular service of Evensong on the second Sunday of each month. We gratefully acknowledge the support of the Prayer Book Society in helping us to raise funds for this ambitious undertaking.
In January 2023, the choir entered into a second partnership with St. Anne's, Hoxton,
leading a monthly choral service there, this time on a weekday evening. The missional
possibilities of Evensong are well-documented at present, and enabling these at a second church represents an exciting new chapter in the choir's life.
Details of all forthcoming services are listed on our Future Dates page.
