Bach Cantata for Good Friday and Vigil

The apostle Paul begins one of the most hope-filled passages of all Scripture with the words "But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren," and it is in that spirit that I write to you now, because I want you to know about the opportunity before you.

Rockville United Methodist and Trinity Lutheran of Bowie are joining forces to present the Good Friday and Easter Vigil services this year, Friday evening in Rockville, Saturday evening in Bowie.

The music will include Bach's cantata Christ Lay in Death's Dark Bonds, the Crucifixus a 8 by Lotti, and Byrd's Ave Verum Corpus.

Here's the opportunity part: You are invited to sing with us.

Rehearsals are Wednesday evenings in Bowie at 8:15, and Thursday evenings in Rockville at 7:30.

For more information, or to otherwise share words of comfort, send a note to me.
