The Cathedral Choir (or sometimes a visiting Choir) takes the principal part in this service, in which Psalms are sung, two readings are taken from the bible, the Song of Mary (Magnificat), the Song of Simeon (Nunc dimittis) and an anthem are sung, and prayers offered.
The congregation is invited to listen and let the music lift up the heart to God.
The traditional language of the Book of Common Prayer is used.
This service lasts between 40 minutes (weekdays) to 1 hour (Sundays).
