The Christ Church Choir rehearsing Richard Clemmitt’s new anthem, “I thank You God”

 

Christ Church Winnetka Choir trebles singing “At the River” – (arranged by Aaron Copland)

Christ Church Winnetka and St. Luke’s Evanston singing Richard Clemmitt anthem “May the Living Christ Be With You” at a joint Evensong last month.

 

Here are a few current musical selections for you to enjoy, sung by our Youth and Adult Choirs while on tour.

The Preces – Richard Ayleward

Magnificat in A – Herbert Sumsion

Pilgrim’s Hymn – Stephen Paulus

Nunc Dimittis – Richard Clemmitt
Cynthia Zimmerman, soprano – Tina Pappademos, alto – Jonathan Cornell, tenor

 

 

And from our archive, with thanks to parishioner Pat Kerpan, following are some very old tracks from a 1962 Christmas vinyl recording by the Christ Church Choir, directed by Robert Birch. To put these recordings into the context of the tumultuous era in which they were made, Pat has supplied a speech from October 1962 by President Kennedy.
