Music Festival Service
“Prayers from the Ark” sung by the St. John’s Choir
Sunday, May 14th, 11 a.m.
French poet and nun Carmen Bernos de Gasztold (1919-1995) wrote a collection of prayers to God from the inhabitants of the Noah’s ark. English composer Ivor Davies (1901-1971) delightfully set selections of these “Prayers from the Ark” to music, and the St. John’s Choir will sing Noah’s Prayer, The Prayer of the Little Bird, The Prayer of the Dove, and The Prayer of the Cat as anthems. Additional anthems and hymns for the service will depict the mighty flood that baptized the earth.
