Music for January 8

Happy New Year from your St. Michael’s music team! We have 5+ months of glorious choral music planned for you, including a Choral Evensong coming up on Wednesday, February 1st at 7 pm for the Eve of Candlemas, featuring music by the English Renaissance composer Thomas Tallis (1505-1585). Our choral season will end with our annual Broadway Night music fundraiser, so save the date and plan to attend on June 2 and/or 3, 2023.

For this Sunday, January 8, we have two different 20th century American choral anthems to mark the Baptism of Christ. At 9 am the choir will sing Gerre Hancock’s dense, eight-part arrangement of the African-American spiritual Deep River. At 11 am, a smaller group with soloists will offer Peter Hallock’s reflection on The Baptism of Christ. Join us as we return to our regular Sunday morning schedule of two choral services at 9am and 11am with a spoken Rite I service at 7:30am.
