Palm Sunday Concert

April 9, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free

Our Sanctuary Choir will join forces with the St. Andrew’s Choir and orchestra to present a very special concert on Palm Sunday afternoon.  They will sing three major pieces:   I Lift Up Mine Eyes by John Rutter, “Easter Hymn” from the opera Cavalleria Rusticana by Pietro Mascagni (composed for two choirs) and the much-loved Holy Week cantata The Seven Last Words, composed by Théodore Dubois. 

The Rutter piece is lyrical, restrained and reflective.  The Easter Hymn is a tour de force, needing large resources and a dramatic, operatic soprano—Gabriella Carrillo, our own soprano section leader.  The Seven Last Words is a powerful cantata that relates Christ’s final words from the cross set to music.  It includes some extraordinarily beautiful music—most especially the 4th word, “God, My Father,” sung by a baritone soloist.  The cantata closes with the final benediction known and loved by many:  “Christ, We Do All Adore Thee.”

Plan now to attend!
