Last year (2018-2019), your choir members chose favorite anthems that we have presented over the previous five years. This year we presented some choral arrangements of hymns chosen by our singers as some of their personal favorites. We have been sharing some information about these anthems and notes from the choir members as to why this hymn is a particular favorite.
Mickey’s anthem, “Hymn of Promise,” was scheduled to be presented on Mother’s Day. She writes: “I like this hymn for its simple message of hope and assurance of God’s caring for us and all of nature, even at our end when we can look forward to the resurrection that is promised to us through Jesus Christ. Musically, too, it has a special charm and a simplicity which brings out the calming reassurance of the words.”
I hope that we will be able to present this anthem to you in church soon. Jean Volk
