Manakin Episcopal Church
Sunday, March 30, 2014
9:30 AM Service
About 115 years ago, Gabriel Fauré (pronounced For'ay) composed his Requiem Mass. This has become one of the most beloved pieces of choral music in the world. Although it contains most of the elements of the traditional mass, it is usually performed in a concert setting. This year, on March 30th, you will have the unique opportunity to hear it as it was intended: during an actual church service. The Manakin Church Chancel Choir will begin with the Introit and Kyrie. At the appropriate times, we will perform the Sanctus, the Pie Jesu, Libera Me, Agnus Dei, and in addition to the traditional Mass pieces, the In Paradisum. Our guest soloist for the hauntingly beautiful violin part in the Sanctus will be Naima Burrs.
MARCH 30TH IS NOT THE DAY TO SLEEP IN! DON’T MISS THIS OPPORTUNITY TO EXPERIENCE THE BEAUTY OF FAURÉ’S MASTERPIECE AS IT ENHANCES OUR PREPARATION FOR HOLY WEEK.
