Come and find your quiet center with two songs of peace this Sunday morning.
First, the sublime "Chant de paix" by Jean Langlais invites calm and prayer as we prepare for worship together. And the Summer Choir returns with a musical offering of "Prayer for Peace" by David Cherwien. Please feel free to join us in singing this simple and accessible piece! Rehearsal is at 9:15 a.m.
The unofficial "Toccata Month" reaches its exciting conclusion in an early toccata in F major by Baroque composer Dietrich Buxtehude. A stirring call to action and movement as we head out into the world at service's end.a
At the 6:00 p.m. service, cantor Blair Carpenter, ukulelist Stuart Yoshida, and I offer songs of peace and gratitude as evening falls.
Each week, Director of Music Mark Heiskanen writes a Music Minute previewing the upcoming Sunday's musical offerings and occasionally opines on other music-related topics.
We are blessed by an engaging music program at Plymouth!
