From our Music Director

It is so nice to have the choir back leading the singing again this Sunday and last. In addition, thank you to Kathy Gill for her solo “I Know that My Redeemer Liveth,” taken from the final (Easter) section of Handel’s most famous oratorio, “Messiah”. The work was originally intended for the Easter season, and was written in the late summer of 1741 in about three or four weeks, with the composer literally writing from morning to night. When first staged in Dublin, Ireland on April 13, 1742, the audience swelled to a record 700 people, as ladies had heeded pleas to wear dresses "without hoops" in order to make "room for more company."
