Soli Deo Gloria
The signature is that of Johann Sebastian Bach. But do you notice the ‘SDG’ above the signature?
This Sunday our Director of Music has prepared an hour that offers to support our worship with the music of Johann Sebastian Bach, 1685-1750. His compositions are just one wavelength within the great spectrum of music, but one that has moved many into the presence and promises of God.
The service will include special contributions by guest cantors Holly and Gordon Gwynne-Timothy and violinist Andrew Dicker – Wachet Auf from Bach’s Advent Cantata, and Et Exultavit from his Magnificat in D, and two preludes by John Hall at the organ. Our hymns will be sung to tunes of the Bach repertoire, including ‘O sacred head, sore wounded’. And the sermon will focus on those three letters added by Bach to his compositions – SDG, Soli Deo Gloria, ‘Glory to God Alone’!
We invite you to join us in Christian worship either in the sanctuary (following COVID protocols of safe distancing, mask wearing and refraining from singing) or by live-stream at https://youtu.be/WhGowxkc-JY Sunday morning. Organ preludes will begin around 10:25 a.m. and the service will commence at 10:30 a.m. Previous services can be found on the St. Andrew’s Youtube channel at https://www.youtube.com/c/StAndrewsPresbyterianChurchKingston
