|Hymns / Service Music||10:15 Service|
|Opening||518 Christ is made the sure foundation
St. Mark's Episcopal Parish in Upland, CA - the church with the really interesting window designs in the wall behind the altar. Click on "SHOW MORE" to see all the text for the verses.
|Hymn of Praise||Lord, I lift your name on high
One we have used before: a singer + guitar with the name TJ Taotua - great and "fresh" rendition/adaptation, with some wonderful guitar work, and equally wonderful singing.
|Psalm||148:1-6 (Anglican with Refrain)|
|Gospel||296 We know that Christ is raised
The "view & sound from the pew" at Aquia Episcopal Church, Stafford, VA. The text link gives you vs. 1, 2, & 4. A great example of church architecture that one often finds in the south - minimal stain-glass windows on the sides, with clear glass - creating a bright and open experience of the building.
|Alleluia & Vs.||I am the way, the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but by me. (Plainsong)|
|Sanctus||Setting by Susan Fletcher
The Sanctus we use for festival services, unfortunately nowhere to be found being sung on YouTube. The link is to that riteseries.com site - click on the play icon to hear the melody, and zoom to 200% to see music & text more clearly.
|Fraction||S-154 Christ our Passover
Back to the one most used by most Episcopal churches in the US for most of the year (it IS the text from the Book of Common Prayer found in the Rite II Eucharist). Not the best of videos/audios - a flag & a candle stand, and the congregation is a little faint! But it is the setting that we use, and the only one on YouTube.
|Communion||577 God is love, and where true love is
A commercial recording made at All Saints Margaret, in London, UK. Strong singing! This is an English paraphrase of the Latin hymn "Ubi caritas". Only place I could find the text was that riteseries.org site - zoom to 200% to see the text clearly.
|Closing||304 I come with joy to meet my Lord
Part of the first verse is missing - but this is one of the few version on YouTube that actually uses the version from our hymnal. To be expected - it's a video from St. Martin in the Fields Episcopal Church in Pompano Beach, FL! You can hear that they use a "cantor" to lead the singing.
|Offertory||O taste and see V. Brown
A WORLD PREMIERE (!) of a new piece written by Central Florida native, Victor Brown. Victor was the Organist & Choir Director at Emmanuel Episcopal Church, Winter Park, for many years. He is now retired, and still lives in the area.
|Communion||Love one another S. S. Wesley (1810-1876)
Youth Choir (with poss. Alumni from the Adult Choir joining in if needed)
A strong, lively, and enthusiastic rendition by the Ontario Christian Choir! .....from 2012.
|Prelude||'Intermezzo' on an Irish Air C. V. Stanford (1852-1924)
Found three on YouTube, but this is the only one where you can watch the organist play - an Irish composer using a very famous Irish tune, played by an Italian in Italy!
|Postlude||'Hornpipe' from Water Music G. F. Handel (1685-1759)
I will play an organ transcription of the orchestral score. The link is to the original - and a GREAT video it is!! This is how it would have been done in Handel's time: notice....
1. The conductor is the harpsichord player!
2. Looks like all "period" instruments (possibly original, though more likely modern copies of instruments from that period - note the natural trumpets and horns with NO valves)
