Living in community with Christ as our Light and the Sure Foundation—a Christian community. Two hymn settings by Helmut Walcha and Paul Manz speak to these ideals based on tunes by Johann Heerman and Henry Purcell.
The joy of this community can always be expressed in music. This Sunday morning, that music is Dvorak's "Allegro risoluto" from the Sonatina, Op. 100 played by violinist Harmony Tucker.
At the 6:00 p.m. service, cantor Lucas Jackson, guitarist Bill DeMarco, and I present a (mostly) Celtic offering as the evening draws nearer.
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!
