Festal Evensong for the Eve of the Conversion of St Paul

As always from St Thomas Episcopal Church in New York City, a lovely choral service for the eve of the Conversion of St Paul the Apostle. Historically, Vespers sung on the eve of a feast day is known as “First Vespers” (“Second Vespers” being on the evening or late afternoon of the day itself) and was the occasion for the writing (and singing) of a great deal of the magnificent church music of the Western Church.

The webpage for all of St Thomas’ choral services is here. You can also listen to these services in livestreaming mode.
