This Sunday: Fauré Requiem Excerpts with Orchestra

The music for Sunday’s 9:00 and 11:00 church services will accompanied by strings, harp, brass, and timpani, and will include festal arrangements of hymns, as well as movements from Gabriel Fauré’s Requiem.


Offertory Anthem (9:00 and 11:00 a.m.)

As set to music by Gabriel Fauré (1845-1924):

Sanctus, Sanctus, Sanctus Dominus Deus Sabaoth. Pleni sunt caeli et terra gloria tua. Hosanna in excelsis.

Holy, holy, holy, Lord God of Hosts: Heaven and earth are full of thy glory. Hosanna in the highest.


Communion Anthem (11:00 only)

Also by Fauré:

In paradisum deducant te angeli, in tuo adventu suscipiant te martyres, et perducant te in civitatem sanctam Jerusalem. Chorus angelorum te suscipiat, et cum Lazaro quondam paupere aeternam habeas requiem.

May the angels lead you into paradise, may the martyrs receive you in your coming, and may they guide you into the holy city, Jerusalem. May the chorus of angels receive you and with Lazarus once poor may you have eternal rest.
