On November 5, First Parish enjoyed a wonderful Music Sunday! The sanctuary choir, joined by guest singers and instrumentalists, performed pieces expressing the joy of music in our lives, the life of the church, and the world. The program ranged from mystical a cappella pieces to powerful songs with brass and African drumming. The brass players contributed a beautiful prelude and thrilling postlude with organ and percussion. Sunday was also the world premiere of the new hymn, “When Music Fills This Sacred Space,” with music by Rip Jackson and lyrics by Helen and Don Cohen, commissioned by Anne and Omar Khudari for the 2016 Great Fall Auction. Thank you, everyone, for your tremendous support for music at First Parish!
