Notes from the Organ Bench…March Anthems
In May and June, as our choir year comes to a close, we look back at the anthems we offered in worship from September to June and the choir is presented with a list of titles from which they vote for their top two or three favorites. I reviewed the ballots from the past five years that I have been privileged to serve as your choir director and compiled a list of ‘favorites.’ We will be sharing these anthems and notes from the choir members as to why this music is a particular favorite.
Our first anthem for the first Sunday in March is “When You Break the Bread,” by Ruth Elaine Schram. Jean Gibson says one of her favorite choir anthems was written by Ruth Elaine Schram. “When I read her bio in the church bulletin, I was surprised to learn that while our ages are different, we do have some things in common. She lived in East Lansing, Michigan, about ten miles from my home town. She graduated from Michigan State University as I did, too. Finally, Ms. Schram’s middle name is my daughter’s also and it was my sister’s first name. It isn’t any wonder her music caught my heart and ear!”
