====== Music Notes ==========

Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.  It is fitting, therefore that we include music in our church service from many traditions and eras, yet that which makes sense to our ears.  Today we have a Lutheran Chorale Prelude from the 17th century, a contemporary American Praise Song, a 19th-century response from Denmark, a spiritual arranged just for our choir, the first hymn with text by an Irish-born poet, the second hymn text by a British lady of the 19th century to the tune by an 18th century Swiss composer, an offertory by the organist of the Billy Graham Crusades,  the third hymn of unknown origin but published in Virginia Harmony in 1831, a response by the greatest British 20th century composer, and a postlude by an Italian Jesuit missionary to Argentina.  In the words of the hymn “Jesus is all the world to me.”
