Celebration
Ancient music that reminds us of the powerful sadness
of Mary’s experience at Jesus’ crucifixion is presented
in Emanuele d’Astorga’s Stabat Mater, while Stephen
Paulus’s The Spirit That Sets Us Free explores the depth
of the essential truths of the Christian faith. Finally, an
ethereal and glorious atmosphere is created by Andrew
Smith’s Missa in Solstitio, reciting texts from the mass
in a beautiful musical setting.

The Park Cities are blessed with great
organists, but they’re never in the same
room at the same time, except for
special performances like this. Virtuosic
neighbors come together to perform
on HPPC’s magnificent Casavant Frères
pipe organ to kick off the 2013-2014
Highlander Concert Series Season.
ALL SAINTS'

The Highlander Concert Series observes All Saints’ Day with
a performance of the monumental Hymnus Paradisi by
Herbert Howells, a composition rooted in the emotions and
faith of those who have lost loved ones. The glorious biblical Mary Mackenzie
texts of Psalm 23 and Psalm 121, juxtaposed with poignant
texts from the church’s liturgy, provide an overwhelming experience of
beauty and transcendence coupled with the musical outpouring of the
composer.
This concert is the first in an annual series of All Saints' concerts and is
presented in memory of former Chancel Choir member Sid Davis, who died
in 2009. It will serve as a time of reflection and remembrance for all those
who have lost loved ones. The necrology of all Highland Park Presbyterian
Church members who have died during the year will be read aloud and
prayers will be offered for all who grieve. This will be an exceptionally
moving event for all.

The extraordinary cantata Ein feste Burg ist

loved for centuries as a magnificent testament
to the Protestant Reformation, celebrating the
great chorale immortalized by Martin Luther. The
Highland Park Chorale also commemorates the 50th
anniversary of the death of President Kennedy with
a performance of Take Him, Earth, for Cherishing,
composed in his memory by Herbert Howells.
