Our St. Matthias’ Adult Choir is happy to be back in the loft and singing for our 10 a.m. service. They’re also diligently working to prepare music for two special services that are quickly approaching.
Please mark your calendars for Choral Evensong on Sunday, November 13 at 4 p.m. A festive reception will follow in All Saints Hall.
Choral Evensong is essentially a service of reflection – of leaving oneself open that God may speak through Holy Scripture, prayer and music. Thomas Cranmer (1489-1556) created Evensong from the sevenfold monastic cycle of prayer. It is sung daily in most Anglican cathedrals throughout the world.
The choir will also present a service of Lessons and Carols on Sunday, December 18 at 4 p.m. Join us on for a mysterious and magical journey. We’ll read scripture lessons and respond with carols. If you’ve never attended a service like this, you’re in for a real treat. We promise it will help put you in the right mind and spirit to prepare for the great feast of Christmas. The service is based on one that has been sung annually since 1918 at King’s College Chapel in Cambridge, England.
Thanks for your continued and gracious support of our music ministry. — Jordan Williams
