“New World Order”
Jan 29, 2017
10:30 am - 11:30 am
First Parish in Lexington
The prophet Bahá’u’lláh had a vision for the world working together and united in peace. He taught that we are all one race, and that we can live together with regard for each other, appreciating our differences while respecting our common humanity. What can we learn from the religious views of the Bahá’ís?
This Sunday our tenor soloist Austin Burns will sing Leonard Bernstein’s serenely beautiful “Simple Song” (from Mass). This Sunday the sanctuary choir, with soloists Austin Burns, Shannon Canavin and Grant Hicks, will sing Haydn’s exuberant “The Heavens are Telling” (from The Creation). The sanctuary choir, with soloists Austin Burns, Chris Hess and Julia Jaffe, will also sing Rip Jackson’s mystical “Rondo” (from The Beatitudes: A Journey of Compassion, Justice and Love Triumphant) for the anthem. Guest soloist Shannon Canavin will sing Rip Jackson’s ethereal “The Good Samaratin” (from The Beatitudes: A Journey of Compassion, Justice and Love Triumphant). For the centering music, Erik Svenson will play Mozart’s beautiful “Romanza” (from Concerto in Eb for Horn, No. 3 K. 447). And for the postlude, Rip Jackson will play J. S, Bach’s powerful “Prelude and Fugue in G Major.”
