Music for Holy Week and Easter

Music this week begins with all choirs at the Maundy Thursday service. The bells will play a piece based on the chorale, “Ah, holy Jesus,” and the Parish Choir’s anthem is also based on this tune. The youth choirs will sing a Spanish footwashing song – “Pan de vida,” and will join the Parish Choir in a Hebrew piece, “Hashivenu.” Good Friday at noon in the chapel has several hymns and reflective organ music. The evening Good Friday service is a contemplative version of the Stations of the Cross, and music will be provided by Abby Warren. The Great Vigil of Easter begins simply in the Parish Hall, but ends in a large way with the first celebration of Easter in the sanctuary. Easter morning’s 9 and 11a.m. service feature handbells, a brass quartet with timpani, and music by all choirs. Our tradition for many years has been to end the service with the “Hallelujah Chorus,” with the congregation’s participation.

Calling all seasonal singers!

Do you like to sing, but aren’t available to make a full time commitment to the Parish Choir? We’d love to have you join us for Easter, 4/21, at the 9 and 11a.m. services. Rehearsals are 3/28, 4/4, 4/11 from 7:45-8:30 and 4/20 from 1-2:30pm. Please let Minister of Music, maggie@ccc.com know if you are interested, and music will be waiting for you!
