Our journey following Jesus’ joyous entry into Jerusalem, the Institution of the Holy Eucharist, and the Crucifixion has now brought us to the triumph of His Resurrection. The music for our services this morning unapologetically reflects the glory of this feast day and the splendor of springtime with the assurance of new life which the Resurrection conveys. We joyfully sing Alleluias in our hymns of praise but we listen as well to a blessed singer as she skillfully navigates the coloratura and ornamentation of Mozart’s ravishingly elegant lines illuminating that one supreme word: Alleluia. We welcome four gifted young brass players from Ridgewood High School as they augment our Easter hymns and undertake the great classics with accomplishment and enthusiasm. Finally, we hear the devoted singing of both youth and adults whose tireless efforts to praise their Creator and countless hours of rehearsal to perfect those praises edify our liturgies week in and week out. Thanks be to God!
The Lord is risen indeed! Alleluia!
