On Sunday, March 12, 2017, a small informal group of church musicians will perform music from the Episcopal hymnbook at 4:00 p.m. at St. Mary’s Bolton. The group includes James Anderson, tenor; Marie Cunningham, flute and soprano; Penny Freund, alto; Kip Gill, pianist and baritone; Laurie Johnson, soprano; and Mary Ruth Jones, reader.

The singing of hymns of praise and thanksgiving and those of grief and sorrow are as old as scripture and a few have been selected that are examples of both vocal and instrumental settings which honor God and engage with Him in the other form of prayer, music. Our selections come entirely from the Episcopal hymn book, which is a rich one indeed. It includes chants, plainsongs, and folk tunes, contemporary poetry, classic works by great masters, and new foundational works by newly emerging masters.

There are many, many denominations of the Christian faith in existence and their particular hymnbooks complement their own worship. But this book stands alone in representing the inclusiveness and rich diversity of the Episcopal Church’s people throughout the world. We hope you will join us and enjoy discovering with us the joy and marvelous musical offerings of your hymnbook.


Reception to follow in the Terry Brantley Parish House.
