We had a wonderful final Choral Evensong of the season last night! The Howells Collegium Regale, Locklair Preces and Responses, and Jonathan Dove’s “Into Thy Hands O Father.” We said thank you to our choir, especially our inaugural class of Choral Scholars at St. John’s. Thank you to @organhipster for his wonderful accompaniment and prelude/postlude. And, we said goodbye to two of our choral scholars moving on to graduate programs in music. God is good all the time!
“O God, whom saints and angels delight to worship in heaven: Be ever present with your servants who seek through art and music to perfect the praises offered by your people on earth; and grant to them even now glimpses of your beauty, and make them worthy at length to behold it unveiled for evermore; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.”
