To Know Christ and to Make Him Known

Nov. 11, 2018: Anthems by Clifford Brock (b. 1982)

Today’s Music: This Sunday the choir sings two anthems we have done before, by composer Clifford Brock (b. 1982), a native of Georgia who works as a horticulturist at the Georgia State Botanical Garden and serves as organist/choir director of an Episcopal church in Lawrenceville, GA. The offertory will be “How can I keep from singing?” The piece consists of three iterations of a tune that sounds folk-like, first by a soprano, next by a baritone, and finally by the entire choir, with each repetition altering the harmonic and textural background. For communion we have “And now the bread is broken,” a lovely piece with a haunting melody with a modal quality. D. Boelzner
