Chancel Choir News:

Preparations for Holy Week are well underway. Plan to attend the weekʼs services. Your Chancel Choir is working diligently to augment the worship experience with a variety of powerful and moving musical selections.

On Palm Sunday a brass quartet will liven the festive mood with two works by Spanish Renaissance composer Tomas Luís de Victoria and Italian master Lodovico da Viadana. In addition, the quartet will accompany the choir as they sing John Purifoyʼs “Hosanna in Excelsis!”

Holy Thursday will be marked by music from the German Romantic giants Franz Schubert and Anton Bruckner, among others.1

A string quartet will join the choir for Good Fridayʼs solemn observance as they present an “O vos omnes” by Brazilian classical era cleric and composer José Joachim Emerico Lobo de Mesquita, and a very beautiful “Pié Jesu” by contemporary gospel composer, William Bradley Roberts.

We will raise our praises on Easter Sunday with “Illumination,” our wonderful Praise Band monthly guests.
