MUSIC NOTES
This morning’s music celebrates the vibrant legacy of contemporary American church
music. David Conte is Professor of Composition at the San Francisco Conservatory of
Music. One of America’s foremost composers, Dr. Conte’s
An Exhortation
was performed
during the inauguration of President Obama in 2009, and the Harvard University Choir
premiered
A Bell
during the 101st Annual Christmas Carol Services in December 2010.
Prayer of St. Theresa
is a slow-moving and meditative setting of a text by the fourteenth
century Carmelite nun, mystic, and writer, St. Theresa of Avila, in a translation by Henry
Wadsworth Longfellow.
Stephen Paulus is one of America’s most prolific contemporary composers, especially
well-known for his operas and choral music.
Pilgrims’ Hymn
forms the poignant conclusion
of the one-act church opera,
The Three Hermits
, and has become one of Paulus’s most
widely-performed choral works.
Emma Lou Diemer is organist of the First Presbyterian Church in Santa Barbara, and a
prolific composer of sacred music, including several volumes of psalm and hymn preludes
for organ. This morning’s prelude comprises Dr. Diemer’s elaboration of the tune
Mit
Freuden zart
(most commonly sung to the text “Sing Praise to God, Who Reigns Above”),
along with her beautiful, contemplative interpretation of Psalm 23.
Conrad Susa also teaches in the composition department at the San Francisco Conservatory
of Music. A noted composer of opera, choral, and instrumental works, Susa’s grand
March for a Joyous Occasion
was written in 1985 as a wedding voluntary. Its celebratory
and raucous opening section soon gives way to a lovely trio, thus showing the various
colors of the Skinner organ; interestingly, this piece had its most prominent performance
on the 1992 dedicatory recital of the C.B. Fisk organ, Op. 100 at Meyerson Symphony
Hall in Dallas, Texas. Those who wish to listen to the postlude are welcome to come into
Appleton Chapel.
FAITH & LIFE FORUM
The Faith & Life Forum begins each Sunday at 9:00 a.m. with a light continental
breakfast, coffee, and conversation upstairs in the Pusey Room of The Memorial Church,
followed promptly at 9:30 a.m. by our speaker of the day. For further information contact
