MUSIC SELECTIONS CHOSEN TO REFLECT THE THEMES AND ACTIONS FOUND IN THE READINGS
[together with links where you can listen to the selections]
Sunday, Nov 24: Last Pent. / Pr.29
Hymns / Service Music 10:15 Service
Opening 435 At the Name of Jesus
Not much to look at, but clear and strong singing from Cardiff Festival Choir, Wales.

Hymn of Praise Canticle 13 Glory to you S-236
This video IS of this version of Canticle 13 we will sing, composed by John Rutter, but, the sound of the choir and congregation doesn't quite match the words, which include " GLORY! ...SPLENDOR! ….MAJESTY!" - needs a little more  energy and commitment!!  The 2nd link takes you to that "riteseries" page - zoom to 200% to see music and text clearer.

Psalm Canticle 16
We'll use a Michael Perry paraphrase found in the hymnal, but sing to the tune used for "The church's one foundation"
Gospel 324 Let all mortal flesh keep silence
YouTube has a plethora of versions for this one - always looking for a new and interesting one.  Check this one out - by a group called "ChurchFolk Project" - very creative, and effective.

Sanctus E 35 - version written by a Susan Fletcher
The version we use for Festival Days (this Sunday, the Last Sunday after Pentecost, often known as "Christ the King" Sunday) - but still not on YouTube.  Link is to "riteseries" - click on the play icons to hear, and zoom to 200% to see somewhat better!

Fraction S-154 Christ our Passover
We continue with not the best there could be, but the only one on YouTube: organ clear, and the congregation in the background - Grace Episcopal Church, Cincinnati, OH.
Listen Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cp8bIMIqzwI
Communion Bind us together, Lord
A "commercial" sound, and it sounds like it is an unaccompanied version - great harmonies, and effective.  Text on the screen.

Closing 483 The head that once was crowned with thorns
We'll end with another video from those BBC programs: location unknown.  However, with this lot at what looks like a smaller UK parish church, most of them must have forgotten the Director's instruction to look like they are having a good time!!  Mouth's open, strong sound, but not the most enthusiastic looking bunch!

CHOIR
Introit I like to sing 
Angels Choir
Not much to look at except some flashing lights and the words - but a lively rendition of this one - used at a VBS several years back.
Listen Link:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vEHGBaN9Orw
Offertory Daniel Saw the Stone   arr. S. K. Lee   256 
Full Choir
I'm thinking a well-known Gospel Hymn, but, alas, no version or our arrangement exists on the Internet.
Communion As the Bridegroom to His Chosen   J. Rutter (b.1945)   670 
Full Choir
Well, if we had an infusion of a few thousand $, AND the space - we could sound like this!!  Rutter's "Cambridge Singers" + the London Sinfonia WITH a harp!  The organ version we will sing - just as beautiful.  However, this is the "prime" version to listen to....
Listen Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sTFp9Mjzppc
ORGAN
Postlude Five part Fantasia in C minor   J. S. Bach (1685-1750)
A UK organist, Peter Hurford, at the Casavant Frères organ of the Lady of Our Sorrows Church in Toronto, Canada.  Turn up the speakers for the full effect!  I must admit, a little slow for my taste - Sunday's rendition will have a little more "forward moving" energy! However, music on the screen as played - remember the three staffs are: right hand / left hand / feet!
