As Trinity Sunday falls on the week after the last Adult Choir service, we did not want to miss the opportunity for beautiful music on this important day. Instead of a congregational setting of the Ordinary (Kyrie, Glory to God, Holy, Lamb of God) Sarah Hunter, Katie Hoyer and Alicia DePaolo will sing Benjamin Britten's Missa Brevis for Three Voices and Organ. This event marks the 60th anniversary of the composition, (1959) and it was written for Trinity Sunday for the Boys Choir of Westminster Cathedral in London to honor retiring Organist/Choirmaster George Malcom. The work is in Latin, is fresh and exciting to hear, and features a colorful, rhythmic organ part. The full Latin text and English translation will be printed in the bulletin so people can follow along. The anthems sung will be All hail adored Trinity by Leo Sowerby and Duo Seraphim by 16th century composer Richard Dering. J.S. Bach's great Triple Fugue in E Flat will bring our celebration to a glorious close. Don't miss this special liturgical event!
