In recognition of All Saints Day, the Chancel Choir will sing four selections from Gabriel Fauré’s serene and consoling Requiem at the 10:30 service on November 2:

In Paradisum: May angels lead you into paradise and martyrs bring you into the holy city Jerusalem. May choirs of angels welcome you, and, like Lazarus, may you have eternal rest.

Libera me: Deliver me, Lord, from that day when heaven and earth shall quake as you judge the world. Eternal rest grant them, O Lord…

Sanctus: Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God of Hosts. Heaven and earth are full of your glory. Glory be to you, O Lord, Hosanna in the highest.

Agnus Dei: Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world, grant them everlasting rest. Let perpetual light shine upon them together with your saints, for you are good.

 

In acknowledgment of God’s countless gifts to us, Trinity’s bell choirs will play two songs of thanksgiving at the 10:30 service on November 23:

Let All Things Now Living: Jay Althouse’s version of a Welsh folk hymn wordlessly conveys our gratitude to God.

Stories of Jesus: Charles Maggs’ gentle setting of Frederick Challinor’s 1903 hymn tune reminds us of the text that recounted moments in Jesus’ ministry for which we are grateful (his willingness to teach children, his calming of the waves on the Sea of Galilee, his entry into Jerusalem and his prayers in the garden of Gethsemane).
