Memorial Service/Funeral Anthems
Date: September 14, 2013
I serve a small Presbyterian church with a well-balanced choir of 20+, including several professionally trained singers. We are facing the death of one of our choir members, and quite likely, several other church members in the next year or so. I want to include a few anthems in our regular rehearsals so that when the time comes, we will not be totally unprepared. Philosophically, this congregation is open, welcoming, diverse, and giving. Frequent sermon themes are community, peace-making, justice, living in the world by faith. It is not fundamental nor conservative.
Suggestions for anthems would be greatly appreciated. Peter Hurford's Litany to the Holy Spirit is one we have.
