While it is always exciting to plan and prepare special music for our weekly worship services and the special celebrations throughout the year — Advent and Christmas, Lent and Easter, and Pentecost — it is the period of Advent & Christmas which brings us a special anticipation and joy. For Cantata Sunday this year, the Choir will be preparing a mixture of anthems which make a musical journey through the Advent season — a season of waiting, longing, and anticipation — to the joyful celebration of the birth of Jesus, our Lord and Savior.
If you are a singer who has not taken the opportunity to sing with us yet, we invite you to join us for this joyful musical journey of our faith. Everyone is welcome from high school age and up. The choir will begin rehearsing the Christmas anthems at the beginning of each of our regular evening rehearsals at 7 pm every Thursday, before we work on our music for the coming Sundays. Come and join us in this journey of Celebration!
“What sweeter music can we bring
Than a carol, for to sing
The birth of this our heav’nly King?
Awake the voice! Awake the string!
Dark and dull night, fly hence away,
And give the honour to this day
That sees December turn’d to May.”
