Music Selections for All Saints’ Sunday

Three of our services this coming Sunday will see special music for the Feast of All Saints’. At the 9:15am Cathedral for Kids Mass, the Choristers will sing Song of the Tree of Life, a beautiful piece by Ralph Vaughan Williams who also composed the favorite hymn For all the Saints, which is also included in the Mass.

Organ music at the 11:15am Mass will be a piece based on For all the Saints written by John Weaver. Also included is a toccata by the French organist and composer Marcel Dupré for All Saints’ Day. The choral music will include the Incarnation Mass by Malcolm Archer, written for our Cathedral in 2014, a spirited setting of Hark, I hear the harps eternal by the eminent American composer Alice Parker, and a setting of the Beatitudes from Zambia.

Evensong for All Saints’ Day will include the Magnificat & Nunc dimittis Collegium Regale, written for King’s College, Cambridge in 1945 by Herbert Howells, and the wonderful anthem O how Glorious is the Kingdom by Basil Harwood. Join us this Sunday for a wealth of hymns, choral and organ music in celebration of this great feast day.
