Musical offerings for Trinity Sunday

This Sunday, May 31, we come to the end of the choir year. Special musical offerings will include two settings of Psalm 42:

"Like as the hart desireth the waterbrooks,
so longeth my soul after thee, O God.
My soul is athirst for God, yea, even for the living God
when shall I come to appear before the presence of God?
My tears have been my meat day and night:
while they daily say unto me, Where is now thy God?


British composer Herbert Howells wrote his hauntingly beautiful setting for choir and organ in a single day - January 8, 1941, while London was under air assault. From 1584, Giovanni Palestrina's setting of the Latin version of Psalm 42 "Sicut Cervus" offers a soaring polyphonic treatment of the text for a cappella choir.

Also this Sunday, we will sing the Trinity premiere of Bishop Tom Breidenthal's new translation of the hymn text "Salve Festa Dies." Traditionally this is the "Hail Thee Festival Day" hymn sung on Easter, Pentecost or Ascension Sundays - our hymnal actually has variations for each Sunday. Bishop Tom's text is a new translation of the original Latin text and does not fit the traditional music for this hymn. We will be singing the new text to the tune Bourbon which is traditionally used for the text "Take up your cross the Savior said..."

Fund-raiser: Organ Stop Drawknobs

With the recent repairs to the Casavant organ console, all of the drawknobs were replaced. Commonly called "Stops," these are the triggers for all the different sounds created by the instrument. Each is labeled describing the sound or function of each stop. (e.g. "Chimes" pictured here) A complete list of the labels is here.
We've converted them into keychains and are making them available for purchase, asking $25 each in this fund-raising project. Please contact Kevin Wines to place a request. First-come-first-served for each stop. Key chains will be available for pickup on Sundays.
