St. Paul's Sanctuary Choir
Director, Tom Pedersen and Organist, Marvin Mills
The Sanctuary Choir will herald in the Christmas season with John Rutter's "GLORIA" on December 15. Written as a concert work, "GLORIA" was first directed by British composer John Rutter on the occasion of his first visit to the United States in May, 1974. The accompaniment is for eight brass players with timpani, percussion and organ - a combination which in the outer movements makes quite a joyful noise unto the Lord, but which is used more softly and introspectively in the middle movement. Although written as a concert work, "GLORIA" divides up quite nicely into movements that will be heard throughout the service. This is a very difficult work and the choir has risen to the challenge!
Guest musicians for this service have been made possible by the
Anne & Gene Garrett Memorial Music Fund.
As sister and brother, Anne and Gene were both musicians and dedicated supporters of the music program here at St. Paul’s.
