After a holiday hiatus, on Thursday, January 7, Associate Organist John Stuntebeck introduced the hymns that will be sung at the 11 a.m. Sunday morning livestreamed liturgy on January 10, 2021—The First Sunday after the Epiphnay and the Feast of the Baptism of Our Lord— from Saint Mark's Cathedral, Seattle. This introduction was presented live on Facebook.
The hymns discussed are:
- "Arise, your Light has come" [see leaflet]
- "Wade in the water" [LEVAS II p. 143]
- "Christ when for us you were baptized" [Hymn #121]
...plus a few words about the tunes which form the basis of John's organ voluntaries this Sunday: Christ unser Herr zu Jordan kam [Hymn #139] and Schmüke dich [Hymn #339].
Join us in the future on Thursdays at 4 p.m. for another live hymn chat! Just visit the cathedral's public Facebook page at the time of the broadcast—if you "follow" the cathedral on Facebook, you should receive a notification when we're live.
