Celtic Service

Join us for our Celtic service -- a time of reflection and meditation with diverse music that is contemplative, lively and spiritually engaging.

What people are staying:

The repetitive nature of the Celtic/Taize service is quite soothing. It is very much like a calming, personalized meditation.
— Suzy Henry
Silence, centering meditation and beautiful music draw me to Taize/Celtic services. Prayerful, reflective contemplation of my faith feeds my soul.
— Sandy Jump
I look forward to every Taize and Celtic service. The music and prayer give me a sense of peace and joy that sustains me in a difficult world.
— Cindy McElroy

John Rutter's Requiem

John Rutter’s hauntingly beautiful Requiem will be performed by the First Presbyterian Chancel Choir and orchestra.

John Rutter wrote his luscious as well as delicately beautiful Requiem in 1985.  As Protestants, the English have long had the freedom of mixing secular text and Latin freely. Rutter relies on the most beautiful and basic of the Latin requiem texts, but chooses English to express new Psalmic texts, in particular the well known, The Lord Is My Shepherd
