“NOTES FROM THE MUSIC MINISTRY”

 

Mary Jane Christeson

Director of Music Ministry

November is a special time for musicians in the liturgical year, because we begin with a commemoration of All Saints Day.  In memory of those who have passed away in the past year, the choir with Dr. Jones will sing the lovely Fauré anthem "Cantique de Jean Racine", written when the composer was only 19 years old.  In the middle of November we honor our veterans in our Sunday services.  During November the Handbell and Chancel choirs will be preparing music for the beginning of Advent at the end of November through the Christmas season—one of the best times to be a church musician, celebrating the coming and birth of Christ through music. Please mark your calendars for Sunday, December 10 at 5:00 p.m. as we sing and play a Candlelight Evensong, featuring music of this season with thoughtful readings and prayers.
