A heartfelt “thank you!” for reading James’ Notes over the years! It’s been my great pleasure to have served Saint Michael and All Angels for nearly two decades and to have used this page to provide some insight into and anticipation about the music of each upcoming Sunday.
As Hyeon and I conclude our ministry at Saint Michael, I write with a couple of key dates:
Celebration of Ministry: Sunday, April 2
There will be a reception in the Garden Cloister following the 11:00 Church service. The morning services will feature some of my music inspired by my experience with all of you in this great parish.
Easter Sunday, April 16
Hyeon and I will conclude our ministry at Saint Michael on the highest Holy Day of the year. Highlights:
- Festal Hymns arranged for choir, orchestra, and organ
- George Frideric Handel, Hallelujah from Messiah
- Marc-Antoine Charpentier, Te Deum (excerpts)
- Charles-Marie Widor, Symphonie V (Toccata), arranged for brass and organ
With great appreciation,
