FLOWERS IN THE SANCTUARY

God and in honor of Mason and Elisabeth

Copeland.

 

SERVICE MUSIC

Prelude and Fugue in D Major, BWV, 532—The

Prelude and Fugue in D Major was probably composed

in 1710, although this is not certain. However,

it was definitely written before Bach codified

the clear two-section prelude and fugue in

the form of what is used in the The Well-

Tempered Clavier, BWV 846–893, which was

composed in 1722. This is because BWV 532

features a lengthy, complex, self-contained fugue

preceded by a multi-sectional prelude. The Prelude

begins with pedal scales followed by an explosive

response in the hands in a free style. The

middle section noted alla breve is stricter. It ends

with an Adagio section filled with extreme dissonances

that resolve beautifully. The Fugue is

made of a simple 4-note subject that repeats. It

requires virtuosic pedal technique especially in

the final pedal cadenza, which brings this fiery

fugue to a close.

Finale for Symphony in D Major—French composer

Louis Vierne (1870-1937) pays homage

to Charles Marie Widor with his Symphony

No. 1 in D Major. The Finale is a staple of organ

repertoire and could be compared to famous

Toccata of Widor’s Fifth Symphony. The

movement begins with an unforgettable ostinato,

or repeated note figuration, with the theme

heard beneath in the pedal. The creative development

adapts the main theme and goes

through several transformations in different

keys. It ends with a large pedal flourish followed

by three large chords that are sure to

make Morningside ring.

 

FAREWELL TO MASON COPELAND:

Today, Fellowship Hour will be an opportunity

to say “Best wishes” to Mason as he embarks

on his new career at The Westminster

Schools. Please come down and enjoy an opportunity

to express our thanks and wellwishes

to Mason and Lis.

 

A NOTE FROM DREW STOCKSTILL

I am in Montreat, North Carolina working on

the leadership team for the final two weeks of

the Montreat Youth Conference. This is part of

the PC (USA) requirement that pastors contribute

in service to the larger church. Over 1,000

high schoolers will attend these two weeks of

the Youth Conference. I will return August 8

and would appreciate your prayers for the conference.

 

JOURNEY MEN'S SHELTER

softball team for providing the meal to the

or your small group is interested in providing

a future meal, please contact shepherd

Tamara Nix, tamaranix@alumni.duke.edu.

MARK YOUR CALENDARS

While in the Presbyterian tradition the work

of preaching is assigned to the clergy, Christian

faith has a long history of testimony. On

August 23, our popular series This I Believe

continues with three Morningside members

speaking about their faith and what shapes

their core values.

Church. A reception will follow.

 

Faith Development at Morningside

ADULT

As citizens of both a world of science and the kingdom of God, many of us struggle to integrate what we learn from scientific advances against what we learn from scriptures, confessions and other aspects of our faith. “Science and Faith,” co-led by Carol Senf and Sarah Tomaka, meets each week in Room 201 at 9:45 a.m. (each week stands alone). The class covers faith seeking understanding through science, the cosmos, the story of life, human beings, brain and mind, and technology and the future.

CHILDREN

Preschool children will hear about a loving gift Jesus received from his friend Mary in the story I Love You, Jesus!
