In Lent, Holy Week, and Easter, 2013, we honor many of the wonderful sacred music traditions that have grown up around these seasons.
The choir continues, each Sunday of Lent, to sing a setting of a prayer, acknowledging our theme of prayer in general, and the Lord’s Prayer in particular, this year.
Palm Sunday: The adult choir will join together with the children’s and youth choir in celebratory Hosanna! —an arrangement of a South African Hosanna.
Maundy Thursday: The service will feature an African-American spiritual.
Good Friday: We will hear again the haunting Were You There?
Easter Sunday: We will welcome string players from the Yale Department of Music, who will play our prelude music. The choir will sing two joyous choruses for Easter Day, and we’ll all celebrate together by singing the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel’s Messiah at the end of the service.
Come to any and all our services, and let music be a meaningful part of your Lent, Holy Week, and Easter.
