It will soon be time for the Vespers Choir to prepare again to celebrate the incarnation of Jesus Christ with the Western New York community. For each of the Vesper’s past 64 years, there has been a hymn, anthem, or scripture that has inspired the theme and music selections for the service. Our 65th service, “Out of Darkness, Light”, is inspired by the following hymn:
As the dark awaits the dawn,
So we await your light.
O Star of promise, scatter night,
loving bright, loving bright,
Till shades of fear are gone.
No one would deny that 2020 and 2021 have been dark times. Our theme acknowledges the darkness of sorrow and pain, the darkness of sin and the Devil, and gives assurance that these are put to flight by the Light that shines in the darkened stable.
Please consider singing in the 65th Vesper Choir and bring along a singing friend!
