2020 Trinity Choir Companion Tour to Canterbury and York, UK

2020 Trinity Choir Companion Tour to Canterbury and York, UK

Join the Trinity Choir on their choral tour to the UK and experience the wonders of Canterbury and York while hearing the choir sing at Canterbury Cathedral and York Minster.

The Trinity Episcopal Cathedral Choir of Girls, Boys and Adults will sing in residence for a week each this coming summer at Canterbury Cathedral and York Minster.

The dates of the trip are Monday, 3 August through Tuesday, 18 August, and traveling alongside the choir are a group of companions, drawn from the cathedral parish and from around the diocese. The Very Rev. Nathan LeRud, Dean of the Cathedral, will serve as chaplain to the companions, offering daily classes and meditations.

The choir and companion tours are both being booked by Willamette Travel Agency, and the members of the tour have the option of booking their own flights or traveling on the group flights. Both travel options include hotel stays, bus transfers, admissions to sight-seeing venues and two end-of-residency banquets.

Only a few spaces left! Contact the Tour Coordinator, Ward Nelson at wardnel2@gmail.com or music@trinity-episcopal.org.

Fruits of the Spirit Cantata

On May 19, the Eve of Pentecost, we will have a unique Vigil Service, featuring a new musical work created by Scot Crandal with text by Robert Bryant. The piece is entitled “The Fruit of The Spirit: A Pentecost Cantata”, and unsurprisingly consists of nine movements. The Service itself will be much like a service of Lessons and Carols, wherein a portion of Scripture is read, followed by a musical response. Each of the nine Fruits of the Spirit will be addressed with an appropriate Scripture passage, followed by the corresponding movement of the Cantata. Some of the movements will be choral anthems, others will be sung by soloists and two movements will be sung by the congregation, hymn-style.

Put Saturday, May 19 on your calendar, and think about inviting friends. And in the spirit of Pentecost, everyone is encouraged to wear red!

There will be a free-will offering.
