MUSIC SELECTIONS CHOSEN TO REFLECT THE THEMES AND ACTIONS FOUND IN THE READINGS
[together with links where you can listen to the selections]
10:15 Hymns &
Service Music
 
Open
304 I come with joy to meet my Lord
The most interestring one on YouTube - an Ordination service at St. Martin in the
Fields Episcopal Church, Pompano Beach - which we've used before.  Starts towards
the end of vs.1.
Listen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OxcH-Sn7NeY
Hymn of Praise
376 Joyful, joyful, we adore thee (vs.1 & 3)
The very creative country style version we have used before by "The Akins" - I think
Beethoven would have approved!
Listen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KPcMSExv41U
Psalm
124 - sung to Plainsong
Gospel
707 Take my life, and let it be
Very odd looking video, but the singing is a little clearer than another one on
YouTube from the National Cathedral.  Click on "SHOW MORE" and you will see all the
verses.
Listen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HKBKKkLPpao
Sanctus
Setting by Fletcher
A BRAND NEW setting of this text for St. Michael's, written by a Susan Fletcher in
2002, and published by the Episcopal Church Publishing company.  Could not find
anyone singing this, but you can listen to the melody at the link below.  Click on the
play icon, and zoom the page to 200% to see the music.

Fraction
S-154 Christ our Passover
Unfortunately, the ONLY one on YouTube with organ + folks singing.  The microphone
is WAY too close to the organ, so it is REALLY loud.  However, you can hear the folks
singing in the background what we will be singing from now thru the summer, and on
to the Sunday before Advent begins again.  Grace Episcopal, College Hill, Cincinnati,
OH.
Listen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cp8bIMIqzwI
Communion
Bind us together Lord
Very "commercial" sound - but it is exactly this song, which we have been singing for
years from the blue hymnal in the chapel.  The excellent text (which is why we'll be
using this one more at the 10:15) appears on the screen as sung.
Listen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DSwDUr_TJ70

577 God is love, and where true love is
An excellent audio recording of the All Saints Margaret church choir in London, UK. 
Text is mostly clear - click on the link below and zoom to 200% to read/sing along.

Closing
God the creator [IONA]
Unfortunately, a video or an audio of this song being sung does not seem to exist on
the Internet.  However, the tune is the same one that we sing for "Morning has
broken" - so, especially as we have sung this before, should be easy!
CHOIR
 
Offertory
Draw us in the Spirit's Tether   H. Friedell (1905-1958)   299
FULL CHOIR
Some great singing by the St. Thomas Episcopal Parish Choir, Coral Gables, FL - about
the same speed we take it, too!
Listen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7PFsGVOORtk
Communion
Jesu, joyaunce of my heart   Bach (arr.Lindley)   303
FULL CHOIR
Unfortunately, nothing to be found on the web for this one.
ORGAN
 
Prelude
Congregational rehearsal of the new SANCTUS
Postlude
Tu es Petra   H. Mulet (1878-1967)
A REALLY exciting and thrilling rendition of this French Romantic Organ classic! The
piece is based on a passage from our Gospel this Sunday: "....you are Peter, and on
this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not prevail against it." 
The English organist, Gillian Weir, plays an organ in Sweden.  Excellent video showing
all that is going on with the hands and feet - interesting silver-toned organ shoes!!
TURN UP THE SPEAKERS!!

6 PM MASS
Selections
The 6 PM Service contains somewhat more contemporary music, appropriate to the
themes of the day, and the more intimate location (our chapel on the North side of
the main church).
Sunday,August 27: Pe. 12, Pr. 16
