Music This Month

     As we head into Palm Sunday, Holy Week, and Easter, the musical life of the church is at its peak. Palm Sunday begins with a processional reminding us of Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem, after which the choir sings “Lift Up Your Heads, O Ye Gates.” But by the end of the service, we will have descended far into the Holy Week story, singing Agnus Dei (“Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world…”), accompanied by cello. The service ends with a haunting rendition of “Were You There?” The choir sings again on Maundy Thursday, continuing this Lent’s custom of singing versions of “We adore you, O Christ” (Adoramus te, Christe). Good Friday’s midday outdoor service will be graced by the singing of choral scholar Yasmeen Lookman. And the 10:00 Easter service culminates with our annual tradition of the choir and congregation singing “Hallelujah” from Handel’s Messiah.

     After providing so much music for this holy season, the choir gets a well-deserved rest the week after Easter. And as we head into April and Eastertide, the music will illuminate the readings of Jesus’ ministry after the resurrection. A full and busy time of year!

As People of faith, we’re called to “make a joyful noise,” and we try our best to do just that at United. Reach out to our music staff, and join in!

If you play an instrument, whatever your age, then please let Music Director Brad Ellingboe know (unitedchurch.brad@gmail.com). Music at United is played not only on the Steinway Piano in the Sanctuary, but also on drums, violins, guitars, trumpets, and lots of other instruments, too.
