Many, many thanks to our nine o’clock Parish Choir for their choral work this year. Their contribution to our worship is immeasurable. They begin their summere break today, but please express your thanks to choir members personally when you spy them in the pews or at coffee hour!
Our Summer Choir season is in full swing. A reduced choir will sing for the 11:15 Solemn Mass, offering motets and mass settings, until Sunday, July 1, when a soloist will sing for four Sundays. On August 5, the summer choir returns. Repertoire lists can be found at https://www.theadventboston.org/1115-music-schedule.
The Wednesday morning Bible study group is currently reading the Epistles to the Galatians and the Ephesians. That’s at 10 a.m. in the Library.
On Sunday, July 15, we will be pleased to welcome the Choir of Sidney Sussex College, from the University of Cambridge in England. Under the direction of conductor-scholar David Skinner, the Choir is a major focus of college life, and during term time the Choir has a regular commitment in the Chapel to Choral Evensong on Fridays and Sundays and Latin Choral Vespers on Wednesdays.
