We have an opportunity to contribute to a fresh outfitting of the sanctuary with the latest Presbyterian church hymnal. Memorial Fund Gifts of $20 (each) will result in the new hymnal being introduced in September and dedicated later in the Fall, honoring or paying tribute to friends and loved ones who have meant so much to us. The Glory to God hymnal replaces both our hardcover volume as well as our paperback Praise songbook.
Here's how to order.
During 10 AM Worship, the Adult Choir with string ensemble will be presenting Gabriel Fauré’s Requiem on Sunday, November 1st.
Fauré said this about his work:
"Everything I managed to entertain by way of religious illusion I put into my Requiem, which moreover is dominated from beginning to end by a very human feeling of faith in eternal rest. It has been said that my Requiem does not express the fear of death and someone has called it a lullaby of death. But it is thus that I see death: as a happy deliverance, an aspiration towards happiness above, rather than as a painful experience. As to my Requiem, perhaps I have also instinctively sought to escape from what is thought right and proper, after all the years of accompanying burial services on the organ! I know it all by heart. I wanted to write something different."
