Special Music and Worship Events
Each year in Spring and during Advent, the Music Ministry at Trinity provides a unique worship opportunity which includes special music. During Lent in 2004, the Senior Choir presented a traditional Moravian Lovefeast for Lent. The Moravian Church and the Lutherans share a common heritage. The “service” is without a sermon and consists of prayer, musical offerings, and a “meal” of buns and coffee as an expression of common fellowship of the family in Christ. Special music for this Lovefeast was a setting of the Passion story by the German Moravian composer Johann Christian Geisler (1729-1815) accompanied by a professional string quartet and some talent from our own congregation.
The Advent Vespers in December 2004 featured the music of German composer, Johann Kuhnau who, in his time, was considered a greater musican than J.S. Bach. The Senior Choir offered a cantata by Kunhau again accompanied by strings.
