ABOUT THE MUSIC
     This Sunday (Pentecost) we welcome members of the Sea Change Chorale and their director, Dr. Deirdre McClure.  For prelude they will sing a beautiful piece in Latin—“O Vos Omnes” (a lament about Jesus’ sorrow when facing the last days of His life).  The piece was composed by Spanish composer Tomas Luis de Victoria (1548-1611).  For offertory they will sing “Psalm 23”, a modern version of the psalm by living American composer Bobby McFerrin (b. 1950).  Note the use of feminine pronouns to bring new meaning to the psalm.  For postlude they will sing “Lean On Me” by living American composer Bill Withers (b. 1938).  You are encouraged to sing on the chorus printed below and express the joy of Pentecost through clapping.

                              CHORUS TO “LEAN ON ME”

         You just call on me brother/sister when you need a hand.

           We all need somebody to lean on.  

         I just might have a problem that you’ll understand.

           We all need somebody to lean on.

     Next Sunday, June 16, the St. Nicholas Chimers will play during the service.

Terry Foster, Church Musician
