18 April Easter 3-B



— Parish Notices —


All of the organ voluntaries played today are drawn from the works of English composers of the Baroque period (1600-1750). Henry Purcell (c.1659-1695) is celebrated as one of the finest of the composers from England in any generation. He was a boy chorister in the Chapel Royal and was ultimately organist at Westminster Abbey. Jeremiah Clarke (c.1674-1707) was once organist at St. Paul’s Cathedral and later one of the “Gentlemen” (adult singers) of the choir of the Chapel Royal. William Greene (1696-1755) was a boy chorister at St. Paul’s Cathedral (under Jeremiah Clarke), became organist at St. Paul’s Cathedral and was later organist at the Chapel Royal. All three enjoyed noted reputations not only for their active musical careers but for their compositions in both church and secular worlds.


We are pleased today to welcome to St. Peter’s members of the family of former parishioners Nancy and Frank Wellersdieck. Immediately following the service today, the ashes of Nancy and Frank will be interred in the Columbarium. Their family would like to invite any who wish to accompany them in prayer to join the procession.
