Yesterday, Thursday 29th, marked the beginning of a weekend of celebration for St. Joseph's Episcopal Church. This weekend was designated the Centennial Celebration Weekend, concluding with a visit from Bishop William Gregg on Sunday.
The celebration began with a service, which used essentially the same line-up of music that was used for the 8 May service. Here is the service music; the numbers are out of The Hymnal 1982.
Prelude: Sinfonia (from Cantata 156; J. S. Bach)
Pro: 289, Our Father, by whose servants our house was built of old (WOLVERCOTE)
Trisagion: S-100, New Plainsong (Hurd)
Psalm: Ps 84 (recited)
Seq: 522, Glorious things of thee are spoken (AUSTRIA)
Off: 260, Come now, and praise the humble saint (TALLIS' ORDINAL)
Sanctus: S-130, Deutsche Messe (Schubert)
Lord's Prayer: chanted (S-119 in Hymnal 1982)
Fraction Anthem: S-169 (Urwin)
Simple Gifts (A. Copland): Lisa Miller, mezzo-soprano; Dolores Brine, soprano
Gather Comprehensive 749, In Christ there is a table set for all (CENEDIUS)
Re: 525, The Church's one foundation (AURELIA)
Postlude: Air from the Water Music (G. F. Handel)
Silly me managed to misplace my organ shoes, so I ended up playing barefooted. Never again. That was way uncomfortable.
