21 March - Good Friday

Here are the lists for the Good Friday liturgies in which I was a part.

I sang in the Second and Third Hours.

1.00 - 2.00 pm: A Service of Lessons and Music

Motet: Hear my prayer, O Lord (Henry Purcell)
Hymn: 458, My song is love unknown (LOVE UNKNOWN, with descant on v. 7 by John Rutter)
Psalm 69:1-21
Lamentations 1:12, 3:21-24

Again, the Episcopal Centre at Duke University and St. Joseph's Episcopal Church held a joint service. The Bishop of the Diocese of North Carolina, The Right Rev'd Michael Curry, presided and preached a wonderful sermon. Numbers are out of The Hymnal 1982.

Psalm: 22:1-11 (plainchant, Tone IV)
Hymn after the Sermon: 172, Were you there
Comm: Jesus, Remember Me (Taizé; Refrain only)

It continues tomorrow with the Easter Vigil. I will have just the one list to post for ECDU and St. Joseph's.
