Choral Eucharist - The Feast of the Holy Trinity

Beaufort Chorale


Psalm: 29

Setting: Schubert in G


Anthems: Let all mortal flesh keep silence (Edward Bairstow), Justorum animae (Charles Villiers Stanford)

A Choral Eucharist is the same as a said Eucharist, except with the addition of glorious organ music and choral pieces, hymns in which the congregation joins the singing, and a homily or sermon. This usually takes place on Sunday mornings and at other times on special festival days.

The Choral Eucharist is almost always located in the nave; the service lasts for a hour or more, depending on the choice of music and other elements of the service.
