About this Event
625 7th Ave NE, Hickory, NC 28601
The Lenoir-Rhyne A Cappella Choir and Sacred Music Program presents “When We on that Final Journey Go,” a musical program commemorating the annual Christian Feast of All Saints. This event is a time of worship and remembrance, weaving together choral music, congregational hymns and readings on the themes of journeying and the procession of the community of saints.
Derived from the final stanza of the hymn “O Day Full of Grace,” an arrangement of that hymn by F. Melius Christiansen has served as one of the A Cappella Choir’s signature pieces for much of its history. In addition to “O Day Full of Grace,” the choir will perform a variety of selections, including Rupert Lang’s “The Kontakion,” Mark Templeton’s setting of “Psalm 23,” “Seeking Light” by Brandon Williams and “In Paradisum” from Requiem by Gabriel Faure. The program will also include compositions and arrangements by Olivia Cresswell, Mark Patterson and Avis D. Graves.
Members of the community are encouraged to submit names of loved ones who have passed away to firstname.lastname@example.org. Names submitted by Friday, Oct. 22, will be included in the program. Attendees will be invited to light a candle in memory of a loved one as they enter the chapel.
