LEVAS 128: Jesus Loves Me
For the children’s entrance hymn this month we are singing what may be the best-known hymn for children in America. Anna Bartlett Warner wrote the words as part of a novel in 1860; she and her sister were popular novelists in the 19th century. The tune was composed for these words by William B. Bradley, an organist and composer of many hymns, including “Just as I am,” “He Leadeth Me” and “My Hope is Built on Nothing Less.” - Donna Wessel Walker
Cantique de Jean Racine (Fauré)
This morning’s anthem, Cantique de Jean Racine, was composed by Gabriel Fauré (1845-1924) in 1865 during his final year at the École Niedermeyer, a school in Paris focused on the study and practice of church music. It’s distinctive feature is a triplet-figure accompaniment which gently percolates below the surface throughout the piece. Fauré studied at the École for a decade, the last four years of which were under the tutelage of Camille Saint-Saëns, whose subtle influence permeates this music; the intimate romanticism of the melody creates its own resonant textures. The anthem’s text is a paraphrase of the Latin hymn Consors Paterni Luminous by the 17th century French dramatist and poet Jean Racine. Fauré chose to name the work after Racine because Racine’s elegant, rather florid French version better encapsulated the ethos French romanticism than did the original Latin. - Dennis Powers
