Special Music for Advent 2013

December 1 – First Sunday of Advent

The SWEA Choir, directed by Eva DiLascio, will offer Swedish carols and lead us in singing the traditional Hosianna (Hosanna, blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord) to begin the Advent season.

December 8 – Second Sunday of Advent

As we focus on the voices of the Old Testament prophets and John the Baptist, the Adult Choir will sing a setting of Comfort, comfort ye my people by David Ashley White and a Shaker song, based on the First Reading from Isaiah 11, that tells of the peace that Christ will bring.

The Adult Choir will lead the annual Service of Advent Lessons and Carols at 10:00 a.m. A series of prophetic Scripture readings will be interspersed with carols sung by the choir and Advent hymns sung by the congregation.

December 22 – Fourth Sunday of Advent The young people of St. Mary’s will present the Christmas Pageant during the 10:00 a.m. service with anthems by the Junior Choir.
