Here is some commentary on today’s music by our Music Director, Christine Gevert. Note that this service is the premiere of her new setting of “Wondrous Love”:

Here is the listing of the music:
Prelude: “All the ends of the world” by William Boyce (1711-1779) – Sung by Crescendo Vocal Ensemble
Gradual Hymn: God is love; His mercy brightens • Sussex
Response to Sermon: “Stay with me” by Jacques Berthier (1923–1994)
Offertory Anthem: “Wondrous Love” by Christine Gevert (b. 1964)
Doxology: “Praise God, from whom all Blessings Flow”
Holy: Santo, santo, santo, santo / Holy, holy, holy, holy (La Misa Popular Salvadoreña) by Guillermo Cuéllar (b. 1955)
Final Hymn: Love Divine • Hyfrydol
Postlude: Organ improvisation on tune • Hyfrydol

William Boyce’s music still is not heard all that much! He was musician to the English King at the Chapel Royal after Handel. Today’s prelude “All the ends of the world” is an excerpt of his longer Verse Anthem “O praise the Lord.”

I’d be curious if any of you knows the hymn tune “Sussex” – none of us in the choir did! It is a lovely and simple melody to the words “God is love” by John Bowring (1792-1872).

We have not heard or sung any Taizé music in a long time… and the short, meditative setting “Stay with me” responds to a part of Heidi’s sermon.

For many years I had thought about writing a choral arrangement on “What wonderous love is this”. The tune always moved me deeply. It is in a minor mode that many Jazz composers also favor (Dorian). My love for Renaissance music inspired the polyphonic writing, where the whole melody will be heard in long notes – much like a “cantus firmus” composition going from one voice to the other, so all four voices each feature one part.

Our final hymn, “Love Divine” features the well known and beloved tune Hyfrydol. This week I learned that the Welsh word means” delightful, agreeable, pleasing, pleasant, beautiful, fair, fine; sweet, melodious.

Rota for Second Quarter 2021

Here’s the Rota for Second Quarter 2021 at Trinity Lime rock!

Trinity continues to worship online due to COVID-19, but as more people have been vaccinated, and as the level of infections continues to decrease (cross fingers on that!) we anticipate resumption of small in-person services, beginning with Easter. What will happen after that remains to be seen.

Our main Sunday service will continue to be online, on YouTube, beginning at 10:30 AM.

The Revised Second Quarter Rota is now available.

Thanks to all who serve!
