MUSIC NOTES for July 17


Richard Purvis’ 1944 Prelude is based on the Lutheran chorale Liebster Jesu. The Anthem (#377 in our Hymnal) was arranged in 1988 by Craig Courtney. The Offertory is Dan Schutte’s 1971 paraphrase of Psalm 139. The Postlude was written by William Walton for Laurence Olivier’s 1955 film Richard III.


MUSIC NOTES for July 24


Charles Callahan’s 1993 Prelude quotes a spiritual that bids us go to Christ when overwhelmed by life’s troubles. Gregory Norbet’s 1971 Anthem paraphrases Matthew 11:28. Bass section leader Philip Keirstead presents a familiar Celtic Offertory (#451 in our Hymnal). André Campra’s 1710 Postlude opens his Venetian Festivals.
