Music Notes

Hymn of the Day “Eternal Father, Strong to Save” #756
Text: William Whiting (1825-1878) Tune: MELITA, John B. Dykes (1823-1876)

William Whiting wrote the text of this hymn for one of his students who was about to sail to America. It was revised and included in the first edition of Hymns Ancient and Modern (1861) “for those at sea”. This hymn, always paired with the tune MELITA which was written and published with it, has found wide usage as the sailor’s hymn and has been allied to the state almost as much as to the church.

MELITA is the ancient name for the island now known as Malta, where Paul was shipwrecked and found safety.

Musical Meditation: Cantilène, Gabriel Pierné (1863-1937)

Gabriel Pierné has been called the most complete French musician of the late Romantic/early twentieth century era. Pierné’s compositional style can be described as very traditional and classical in form while possessing a modern spirit. He was able to eloquently balance his own personal language with the elements of both discipline and instinct. Evidence of his studies with both Massenet and Franck are very apparent. From Massenet he acquired a sense of melody and lightness, while from Franck he developed a sense of structure and consciousness of art, and an inspiration for religious music. Though much of his music is overshadowed by other French composers from his day, it is because his time was devoted primarily to conducting.

Cantilène is the second of Trois Pieces, Op. 29.

Bishop Elizabeth A. Eaton and leaders from The Episcopal Church, the Anglican Church of Canada and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada have prepared a series of devotions to observe the Season of Creation 2020, Sept. 1–Oct. 4.

In the opening devotion, the leaders stress the significance of a collective responsibility in caring for creation.

Dear members of God’s family at Resurrection Church,

Every Sunday is a celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. On this Sunday we read a passage from Isaiah that can remind us of Easter since it is read every year at the Vigil of Easter, calling us once again to feast on God’s free mercy. And then, from Matthew today, we read the story of Jesus feeding a great multitude in the wilderness. In our worldwide wilderness now, join the congregation on Sun- day, August 2, at 10am, gathering again in common prayer around the risen Jesus Christ, the great Breadgiver.

Music Notes

Hymn of the Day “O Jesus, Joy of Loving Hearts” #658
Text: atr. Bernard of Clairvaux, (1091-11563), Ray Palmer , tr.(1808-1887)
Tune: WALTON, W. Gardiner (1770-1853)

Ray Palmer’s translation of several verses from “Jesu, dulcedo cordium” was published in 1858. In 19th century Protestant America, it was unusual to translate a Latin hymn text. He was pastor of a church in Maine and upstate New York and is probably best known for penning the verses, “My faith looks up to thee.”

William Gardiner wrote about music, composing, and editing. Having met Joseph Haydn and Ludwig van Beethoven on his business travels, Gardiner then proceeded to help popularize their compositions, especially Beethoven's, in England. He recorded his memories of various musicians in Music and Friends. In the first two volumes of Sacred Melodies (1812, 1815), Gardiner turned melodies from composers such as Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven into hymn tunes in an attempt to rejuvenate the singing of psalms. WALTON, aka BEETHOVEN, may have roots somewhere in Beethoven’s music, but Gardiner could not say where. In any case, his work became an important model for American editors, and hymnbook editors often turned to Gardiner as a source of tunes derived from classical music.

Musical Meditation Prelude on “Wareham”, Healy Willan (1880-1968)

Healey Willan was an Anglo-Canadian organist and composer, best known for his church music compositions. I found this quote he used to describe himself which suggests he had quite a sense of humor: "English by birth; Canadian by adoption; Irish by extraction; Scotch by absorption." Willan was able to make his livelihood as a composer, an encouraging detail not lost on the young Canadian musicians who followed him.

This organ piece comes from Willan’s collection of Choral Preludes published in 1957 and are based on well-known hymn or choral tunes. Many have the same basic structure: a short introduction followed by the phrases of the tune alternating with interludes. All offer a richness of harmonic beauty typical of Willan’s compositions.

The Musical Reflection, "WAREHAM" is a setting of today’s second hymn, #729, “The Church of Christ, in Every Age”. The tune was composed by William Knapp and named for his birthplace. The tune is easy to sing because of its almost continuous stepwise motion and smooth melodic contour and is most of found paired with this text.

Dear members of God’s family at Resurrection Church,

For the third Sunday in a row we read from Matthew’s collection of Jesus’ parables. Only, this Sunday the images are more surprising yet, full of God’s wisdom, like that given to Solomon, full of the love of Christ from which we can never be separated, as St. Paul says. On Sunday, July 26, if you can, join the congregation in praying together at 10 am.

Music Notes

Hymn of the Day: “Jesus, Priceless Treasure,” #775
Text: Johann Franck (1618-1677)
Tune: JESU, MEINE FREUDE, Johann Crüger (1598-1662)

The original German text “Jesu, meine Freude” by Johann Franck first appeared in Johann Crüger's Praxis Pietatis Melica (1653) in six long stanzas. The text was modeled in part after a love song found in Heinrich Albert's Arein (1641), "Flora, meine Freude, meiner Seele Weide.” Catherine Winkworth translated the text into English and published it in her Chorale Book for England (1863). Our version includes the original stanzas 1, 2, and 6. Much loved by Christians from various traditions, “Jesus, Priceless Treasure” is one of the finest examples of German piety in a devotional hymn. The intensity of emotional expression found here provides a suitable counter-balance to the cerebral character of much Reformed worship.

Inspired by Jesus' parables of the great treasure and fine pearl (Matt. 13:44-46) and other New Testament references to the metaphor "treasure," this text is strongly Christocentric. Stanza 1 confesses with mystical ecstasy that Christ is the source of purest pleasure (a bold affirmation that counters the hedonism of this world). Stanza 2 expands the metaphor: Christ our treasure is also our fortress, our defense and protector from the "sin and hell" that would "assail" us. And stanza 4 affirms that, despite the fears and sorrow we must bear, Jesus remains our greatest treasure and source of profound joy.

Johann Crüger is known as a German composer of well-known hymns. He was also the editor of the most widely used Lutheran hymnal of the 17th century, Praxis pietatis melica, which is considered one of the most important collections of German hymnody in the seventeenth century. It was reprinted forty-four times in the following hundred years. He wrote music instruction manuals and tirelessly promoted congregational singing. With his tunes he often included elaborate accom­paniment for various instruments. Crüger's hymn collection, Neues vollkomliches Gesangbuch (1640), was one of the first hymnals to include figured bass accompaniment (musical shorthand) with the chorale melody rather than full harmonization written out. It included eighteen of Crüger's tunes.

Musical Meditation: “Soul, Adorn Thyself with Gladness”, Aaron David Miller (b.1972)

The original of the beautifully ornamented melody of today’s Musical Reflection represents a second collaboration of music and text by Johann Crüger and Johann Franck. Johann Crüger composed SCHMÜCKE DICH (Deck Thyself, My Soul) and first published the tune as a setting for the first stanza of the SCHMÜCKE DICH text by Johann Franck. The tune name is the incipit of the original German text. Johann S. Bach used this tune in his Cantata 180; he and many other composers have written organ preludes on the melody.

Aaron David Miller is noted for his highly imaginative and creative style, found in his performances, improvisations and compositions. He serves as the Director of Music and Organist at House of Hope Presbyterian Church in St. Paul, Minnesota and maintains an active recital schedule. He is a forensic musicologist for Donato Music in Scarsdale, NY.

The Rev. Gene Copenhaver

It has been reported to us that The Rev. Gene Copenhaver, former pastor of Resurrection Church, is in failing health. Prayers for him and for his family are encouraged at this time.
