Music Notes

Hymn 581: Where charity and love prevail

Both Epistle and Gospel lessons this morning discuss, in different ways, disagreement and mutual hurt in the community. This hymn about love has a history in conflict. The text is based on a Latin hymn written by a bishop for a contentious church synod in 796. The dignified, moving music dates from the time of Queen Elizabeth I: the tune was first published in London in 1592 as a setting for a prayer for the Queen during a time of deep dissension in her reign. Often sung on Maundy Thursday, the hymn is a meditation on our bonds to each other, and the need to strengthen them. --Donna Wessel Walker

Let the Heaven Light Shine On Me (Hogan)

Moses George Hogan (1957-2003) graduated from Oberlin College Conservatory of Music in 1979. He is best known for his settings of black spirituals. In addition to his work with the Morgan Moses Chorale and the Morgan Moses Singers, he compiled the Oxford Book of Spirituals in 2002. His revitalization of the black spiritual tradition led to an appointment in 1993 as artist-in-residence at Loyola University in his native New Orleans. --Dennis Powers
