Sermon

Good Friday–April 19, 2019

Some people don’t have a clue about this day we call Good. I think of a couple in London I heard about years ago that was looking at some jewelry when the man pointed and said to his girlfriend, “Look at that cross with a tiny man on it.” Continue reading

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.
