Virtual Choir

Our Director of Music Ministries, Jackson Merrill has been keeping in touch with the members of the Trinity Choir and the Choir School of Hartford with a daily message, which usually links to a recording of one of the many pieces in our repertoire or a piece that inspires thoughts of the day. 

Jack has also started a weekly series of Zoom calls going through the curriculum of the RSCM Voice for Life. 

If you're interested in participating in either of these activities, please contact Jack for more details.

Dear Friends:

Today’s virtual choir activity is Faux Follet by Louis Vierne. We’ve already talked a bit about Vierne in our first Virtual Choir Activity.

Feux follets translates to ‘whisps’. This refers to the legendary “Will-o’-the-wisp” or the mythical light said to guide travelers. This piece is then programmatic, meaning it exists to provide the experience of encountering the “Will-o’-the-wisp” to the listener.

There are other examples of this phenomenon set to music. I’m also sending Franz Liszt’s transcendental etude with the same title: 

Enjoy!

Welcome

It is God who calls us together into a community of faith. It is not a random happenstance: God calls us to our location on Asylum Hill as the spiritual base from which we live out our call to minister in Jesus' name.
