To commemorate All Saints Day (November 1), the Chancel Choir will sing selections from Gabriel Fauré’s serene and consoling Requiem at the 10:30 service on November 3:
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.
Pie Jesu: Gentle Lord Jesus, grant them eternal rest.
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 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.
On November 17, the Trinity Ringers will present a festive prelude at the 10:30 service; Sandra Eithun’s 2015 version of the Baroque Rondeau by Jean-Joseph Mouret will be familiar to many as the theme to the PBS Masterpiece Theater series from 1971-2007.
If you have a child between the ages of 2-12 who loves to sing? Come join the Trinity Trebles on Sundays at 9:30 a.m.! We had a great time learning the song Give me Oil in My Lamp and soon we will be starting our Christmas presentation and learning how to play the choir chimes. No previous singing or musical experience needed! Any questions? Email Michelle Zenk.
