The Coventry Supper sign-up sheet is on the Welcome Desk.
Those who sign up will be placed in groups of eight that will gather for potluck suppers during the year. When the groups are assigned, one person will agree to call the others to arrange the first gathering. The caller will host the first supper, provide the main dish and the others will each bring a dish for the meal. The idea is for each person to host the group during the year. This is a supper and the purpose is fellowship; it is not intended as an occasion to drag out the fine linens and silver! Each group will decide how often they will gather, but it is suggested that it be at least every four to six weeks.

The 2015 Episcopal Church Calendars, both Ordo and Regular, have arrived; they are $6.00 each and feature a photo of the acolytes on Easter. They can be found in the lobby, near the chapel.

Hymn 435: At the name of Jesus
This hymn is an extended quotation of and meditation on Phil 2:9-10, which may in turn be Paul's quotation of a very early hymn extolling Christ's self-giving love. Its author, Caroline Maria Noel, was an invalid all her adult life: she wrote this hymn for a processional she could not have joined. Ralph Vaughan Williams wrote the tune specifically for these words, using strong rhythms and a modal melody reminiscent of the folk songs he loved; the tune is named "King's Weston" for a village in his native Gloucestershire. The combination is perfect, giving the whole a quiet power to move us --Donna Wessel Walker
To Thee O Lord - (Rachmaninoff)
Sergei Rachmaninoff (1873-1843) set two pieces of the Russian Orthodox Church's service: the Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom, and the All-Night Vigil (or Vespers). Both are for unaccompanied chorus and are based on traditional chants. The Vigil is acknowledged as his greatest choral composition. Its high point comes in the fifth movement, Nunc Dimittis, where the second basses navigate a descending scale that ends with a low B-flat (the third B-flat below middle C). This morning's anthem is the last movement of the Vigil. --Dennis Powers
