R. Vaughn Williams Sunday

Well, that's not the official name for this upcoming Sunday, Trinity XXI, but that appears to be the theme for Sunday. From what I have been able to gather from various sources it appears Fr. Daniel is (um, I hope Josephine will forgive the organ analogy) pulling out the stops. As he noted in an e-mail to the parish and this Sunday's service:
Anniversary of the birth of R. Vaughn Williams (12 October 1872 – 26 August 1958) English composer of symphonies, chamber music, operas, choral music and film scores. He was also the editor of the English Hymnal (from whence come many hymns in our Hymnal 1940) and the first Oxford Book of Carols (1928). This year is the 50th Anniversary of his death, and thus there have been many concerts, festivals and recordings made in his honor this year. Our music on Sunday, October 12 will feature hymns and other music of Ralph Vaughn Williams.
From what I've been hearing about the "other music" this will be a service not to be missed. (Lord, may my flight home arrive on schedule, or at least not too late, so that I may attend! Amen.)

    Alas, it was not to be. Yet, don't feel too bad about missing the Service: there will be plenty of music by R. Vaughn Williams at our parish for the forseeable future!
