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.
Deuteronomy 26:1-11, Psalm 91:1-2, 9-16, Romans 10:8b-13, Luke 4:1-13

We’re so full of dust we’re constantly shedding the stuff. Continue reading →
