ABOUT THE INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC

The prelude for this Sunday is “Poem Eroica” by English organist and composer H. B. Weatherdon (biography dates unknown).

The offertory is “Air With Variations” by German/English composer George Frideric Handel (1685-1759 A.D.).

The postlude is “Let Everything That Hath Breath” by living composer George Arthur Pass II.  This piece is not to be confused with the Jeffery Ames piece we are currently working on after Coffee Hour each Sunday.  We will rehearse this exciting piece again this Sunday immediately following refreshments after the service.  Please join us!  This is a big piece which would profit from lots of voices.
