Festal Choral Eucharist – Easter Day
All are welcome to join us as we convene at our 11am Easter Sunday Service to celebrate the great miracle of Easter in readings, music and hymns and in joyful communion.
However deep the darkness and despair of Good Friday, in the end God’s love was far greater. There is new life. There is new hope, for Christ is risen from the dead.
Refreshments will be served after the service and there will be an Egg Hunt in the Rectory Garden and other Easter activities for the under 10s.
During the service St Bride’s Choir will sing some suitably jubilant music to celebrate this great feast day:
Setting: Messe brevis – Zoltán Kodály
Canticle: Easter Hymn from Cavalleria rusticana – Pietro Mascagni
Sermon: The Revd Canon Dr Alison Joyce, Rector of St Bride’s
Anthems: i) Victimae Paschali – William Byrd; ii) Jesu, joy of man’s desiring – Johann Sebastian Bach
Organ Voluntary: Finale, Organ Symphony No 6, Op 59 – Louis Vierne
